Head to Head


Last week's first leg of this quarter-final ended all square. Arsenal took the lead through Nicolas Pepe in the 86th minute, only to concede a 94th equaliser as Tomas Holes earned Slavia Prague a draw.

In the 2007/2008 UEFA Champions League group stages, Arsenal were 7-0 winners at home before playing out a 0-0 draw in Prague.

Slavia Prague Form


Slavia Prague's unbeaten run looked like ending in the first leg when conceding four minutes from time. But Tomas Holes salvaged a 1-1 draw with an injury-time equaliser.

That made it 22 games without a defeat, and it soon became 23 when Slavia recorded a 2-0 win over city rivals Sparta Prague on Sunday. Holes and Stanislav Tecl got the goals.

Jindrich Trpisovsky’s Slavia drew at home to Leicester and Rangers in the last two rounds of the Europa League before winning this on aggregate.

Arsenal Form


Arsenal ended a four-game run without a win when defeating Sheffield United 3-0 in the Premier League on Sunday.

An Alexandre Lacazette double and a Gabriel Martinelli goal gave Mikel Arteta's side a much-needed boost against bottom of the table Blades.

Last week's 1-1 draw with Slavia Prague had made it four games without a win for the Gunners, who had also drawn with West Ham 3-3 after trailing 3-0.

Arsenal lost 1-0 at home to Olympiakos in the Europe League (they progressed on aggregate) and went down 3-0 at home to Liverpool in the Premier League.
