Arsenal vs Slavia Prague live stream: How to watch Europa League fixture online and on TV tonight

Arsenal take on Slavia Prague this evening as the teams’ Europa League quarter-final tie begins in north London.

Hosts Arsenal will be seeking a positive response to last weekend’s 3-0 Premier League defeat by Liverpool, while Slavia Prague are unbeaten in their last 21 outings.

The Czech top flight’s leaders have had a man sent off in their last two matches, however, and will want to steer clear of such disciplinary issues here as they face Premier League foes in Europe for the second time this season.

Prague eliminated Leicester City in the last 32 – before knocking out Scottish champions Rangers in the last 16 – while Arsenal progressed against Olympiacos in the last round despite a second-leg loss.

Here’s everything you need to know about the quarter-final first leg this evening.

What is the team news?

Arsenal will be without defenders David Luiz and Kieran Tierney, both of whom are suffering from knee injuries, with the latter likely to miss as many as six weeks of action. In midfield, Real Madrid loanee Martin Odegaard will also miss out due to an ankle issue, but Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe and Granit Xhaka all return for Mikel Arteta’s side.

For Prague, Ondrej Kudela’s provisional one-match suspension following allegations of racism towards Rangers’ Glen Kamara rules out the 34-year-old, who has also come down ill this week. The visitors have further defensive absentees in the form of Simon Deli and David Hovorka, but Abdallah Sima will be able to play on the wing despite a domestic ban. Goalkeeper Matyas Vagner, 18, is also eligible to step out here in spite of a red card at the weekend, with first-choice shot-stopper Ondrej Kolar out due to a sinus fracture.
