Rennes will on Thursday welcome Arsenal at the Roazhon Park stadium and they will be hoping to get a good result vs the North Londoners as BATE Borisov did a few weeks ago. Arsenal players including Sokratis and Lucas Torreira trained on Wednesday at the London Colney to prepare for Thursday’s game because they will be hoping to get a win away from home
Sokratis Papastathopoulos has been impressive this season and he was not in the squad that lost to BATE Borisov in Belarus so the Arsenal fans will be happy that the Greek international is available for this game since he has shown that he is their best defender this season. Sokratis Papastathopoulos has sent a message to the Arsenal fans ahead of the Rennes game.

“Ready for Rennes, Let’s keep the good form going!, Arsenal.”
Sokratis will definitely be in the lineup that faces Rennes today even though they will on Sunday face Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium.
Lucas Torreira has been outstanding for Arsenal this season but he will however miss their next three Premier League matches because he was sent off in the North London Derby last weekend. The Arsenal players trained at the London Conley yesterday before flying to France for their match against Rennes. The midfielder sent a message to the fans ahead of the game.
Training with a smile and thinking about tomorrow’s Europa League match.

Lucas Torreira will definitely start in this game since he will not participate in their upcoming Premier League game vs Manchester United on Sunday at the Emirates Stadium.
