Slavia Prague v Arsenal team news

Slavia Prague: Goalkeeper Ondřej Kolář was injured badly, fracturing his skull, when the Czechs eliminated Rangers in the last round, and will therefore be unavailable.

Ondřej Kúdela and Simon Deli also look set to miss out, meaning Slavia could be short of options in the centre-back area.

Arsenal: David Luiz and Kieran Tierney remain out, while Bukayo Saka is a doubt after he came off with a problem against Sheffield United.

However, there is better news concerning Martin Ødegaard, Emile Smith Rowe and club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, all of whom are expected to be available for Mikel Arteta.

Our prediction: Slavia Prague v Arsenal

Slavia have repeatedly provided upsets in the Europa League this season and eliminated Leicester and Rangers in the previous rounds, before taking a draw back from the Emirates.

Opposition sides have struggled to break down the Czechs and expect them to defend deep and look to counter-attack on the Gunners.

Despite that, Arsenal's quality and experience should prove too much, but this will likely be a very tight affair in Prague.

Our prediction: Slavia Prague 0-1 Arsenal (13/2 at bet365)
