Arsenal needs three points, and that Ludogorets will snatch at least one point vs. Paris Saint-Germain to get a spot in group A.
Today Arsenal will travel to Basel’s St. Jakob-Park for their final Champions League game. The kick-off will start at 7.45 pm BST. You can watch the game live on BT Sport 2 and BT Sport 2 HD.
Arsenal will face another second place in the Champions League unless the Bulgarian men from Ludogorets manage to take some points from PSG at the Parc des Princes.
Arsenal was on their way to the top, but the draw against Paris Saint-Germain, made them fall off track. However, Arsene Wenger is determined to keep the team’s momentum, and will not likely rest any players, in spite of already having qualified for the next stage.
Olivier Giroud has finally returned after missing the last 2 games versus West Ham United and Southampton. However, Francis Coquelin is suspended after he picked up a yellow card in the final match. Granit Xhaka will likely start in midfield with Mohamed Elneny.
Meanwhile, Basel is coming to this game after a devastating 3-1 loss versus Young Boys FC and are looking to get a win versus Arsenal in the Champions League.
Taulant and Granit Xhaka will fight in the midfield yet again. This is the 2nd meeting between the teams, but Arsenal has played Swiss opposition in Europe on 5 other occasions and currently remain unbeaten.
