The Gunners can validate their qualification for the round of 16 of the Champions League this Wednesday. As part of the 4th day of the group stages, Arsenal hosts Sevilla FC two weeks after their victory in the first leg (to follow live with commentary on FM from 9 p.m.). If successful, and if Lens wins at the same time, Arteta’s men will be guaranteed to finish in the first two places in Group B.
Deprived of Odegaard or even Jesus, Arsenal presents itself in 4-3-3 with Havertz and Trossard to replace the two absent. For the rest, the team is the same as in the previous duel (2-1), with Martinelli replaced as scorer while Saliba remains alongside Gabriel in the central hinge.
Not spared by injuries in the defensive sector (Nyland, Acuna, Ramos), Sevilla changes its offensive animation since En-Nesyri is now supported by the trio Lamela-Sow-Pedrosa, while Badé is associated with Gudelj in the axis of defense.
Arsenal: Raya – White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu – Havertz, Jorginho, Rice – Saka, Martinelli, Trossard.
Seville: Dmitrovic – Juanlu, Badé, Gudelj, Salas – Jordan, Fernando – Lamela, Sow, Pedrosa – En-Nesyri.
