Aiming to clinch first place in Group A when FC Zurich visit the Emirates, Arsenal will try to make up for a missed opportunity to complete Europa League qualifying for the last-16.


Despite losing 2-0 to PSV Eindhoven last week, the Gunners still in top place in the division. Going into the last matchday, there are two points between them. The Emirates fortress should serve the Gunners well after winning each of their previous 11 competitive home games. Arsenal also have won all five of their recent matches in Europe played at the Emirates Stadium, losing only one of their previous 19 such contests.

Zurich still have something to play for after defeating their Scandinavian opponents 2-1 on the penultimate matchday. Had Zurich lost against Bodo/Glimt, they would have finished fourth before the last matchday. The worst defensive record in the whole competition, with a total of 15 goals allowed in their five group-stage games.


The Gunners are in excellent shape and have already declared themselves as one of the leading candidates for the crown. They will be driven to provide a fantastic victory since they are also vying for the Europa. It looks like Arsenal will score a significant victory.
