Arsenal will be back in action in the UEFA Europa League this week as they host Rapid Wein in an important Group B match at the Emirates Stadium on Friday, December 4. The UEFA Europa League game between Arsenal and Rapid Wein is scheduled to kick-off at 01:30am IST.
Despite their poor form in the Premier League, Arsenal have spectacular record in the Europa League. They are at the top of their group with 12 points from four games and are the favourites to win this fixture. With an impressive run in the Europa League, Mikel Arteta’s men have effectively sealed their spot in the knockout rounds of the competition.
Meanwhile, Rapid Wein are currently in the third position in the group standings and are level on points with second placed Molde. The Austrian giants face an uphill battle to secure qualification over the next few weeks and they will be keen to take away couple of points from this game.
Both teams have faced each other on three occasions, Arsenal won two, while Rapid Wein have managed to dominate just one. The reverse fixture between the two teams in October this year ended in a narrow 2-1 win for the Gunners, as the Austrians put up quite a fight.
