Arsenal v Slavia Prague, Tues 23 October (ko 7.45 BST)
Arsenal are well placed at the top of the group with two wins and no goals conceded before tonight’s home game against Slavia Prague. They didn’t play that well at the weekend but still managed to win – something that the young guns couldn’t do in seasons past.
Robin van Persie is definitely out so either Eduardo or Alexander Hleb may be asked to support Emmanual Adebayor up front. Slavia Prague beat Ajax in the qualifying rounds and were impressive despite losing to Seville so it’s unlikely to be a walk over but Arsenal should still have too much quality.
Prediction: Arsenal 2-1 Slavia Prague
