The Gunners were brought back down to earth with a bump after falling to a narrow loss to Manchester City on Saturday.

There is still plenty to encourage the Emirates faithful, however, with Mikel Arteta’s side becoming increasingly more difficult to break down with each passing week.

While Rapid Vienna remain unbeaten thus far in Austria, sitting just two points off table- toppers RB Salzburg, they will certainly enter the clash as the underdog.

The Europa League represents a fantastic opportunity for European silverware for Arsenal, and they won’t be taking anyone lightly in their bid to get their hands on it.

Rapid Vienna v Arsenal team news

Rapid Vienna: The Austrian side has been coping just fine despite a number of long-term injuries that have left their squad looking rather thin.

Manager Dietmar Kühbauer is unlikely to make many changes for the visit of the north London giants.

Arsenal: Arteta’s first team squad came out well following the fiesty clash with Man City. Unfortunately, Gabriel Martinelli and Skhodran Mustafi remain unavailable through injury.

The Spanish manager may choose to rest a couple of his stars but mass rotation is unlikely as he looks to further instil his system into his side.

Our prediction: Rapid Vienna v Arsenal

While both sides have been in decent form on the domestic front, Vienna will be bracing for a difficult night on Thursday.

Arsenal are steadily improving under Arteta and will be looking to get back to winning ways in Austria.

With a glut of youngsters eager to make their mark and catch the manager’s eye, it could make for very pleasant evening for the Arsenal faithful.

Our prediction: Rapid Vienna 0-3 Arsenal
