The gunners begin the Europa League round of 32 first leg match away to Ostersunds in Sweden.
The gunners are playing in the Europa League for the first time in 19 years and were not used to the round of 32 matches because they were playing in the UEFA Champions League but will now be forced to play them because they didn’t make the UCL spots last season.
The gunners travelled to Sweden on Wednesday and they are already there but will have a hard time to play in the pitch of Ostersunds because the temperatures in that place are very cold so the manager will need to tell his players and come up with a plan how they will cope up.
The gunners have never played this club before in the past so this will be the first time and the club is even too young because it was established in 1996 so it’s just 22 years whilst Arsenal has been there for over a century.
