Arsenal are set to host FC Zurich in their last Europa League group game. The Gunners know that a point may not be enough to secure top spot due to PSV Eindhoven having a better goal difference than Mikel Arteta’s men.
PSV play third place Bodo/Glimt, who are unable to qualify. The Dutch outfit, who recently beat Arsenal, are on 10 points with a +13 goal difference, whilst Arsenal are on 12 points. A point for Arsenal but a win for PSV would see them move on to equal points, with PSV’s superior goal difference a possible factor.
Arsenal last met the side back on matchday one in the Europa League, which was the first ever meeting between the two sides. Arsenal won the game 2-1, which means they have won all seven of their matches against Swiss opposition.
Zurich have been poor in their travels recently. They have only won one of their last 17 away games in major European competitions. Their last away win in this competition was over AEK Larnaca back in 2018.
Arsenal shook off their recently wobbly form, which included a draw to Southampton and a loss to PSV. They comfortably shrugged off Premier League new boys Nottingham Forest 5-0, with Reiss Nelson scoring a brace.
