Match: Atletico Madrid v Arsenal
Stadium: Wanda Metropolitano
Kick-Off (GMT): Thu 03 May 20:05
It’s Arsenal’s biggest match of the season thus far and potentially one of the biggest of the last decade.
Here’s how we think Arsenal will line up in what could be Arsene Wenger’s final European match in charge of the club:
GK) David Ospina
Wenger has confirmed that Ospina will start ahead of Cech.
- Predicted Arsenal line up vs Slavia Prague – It’s “all or nothing”
- Arsenal icon Martin Keown says squad will be ‘baffled’ by star’s omission
- Arsenal may be forced to sell top ‘asset’ as pressure piles on Arteta
RB) Hector Bellerin
RCB) Shkodran Mustafi
Mustafi will start at centre-back.
LCB) Laurent Koscielny
Koscielny will play.
LB) Nacho Monreal
Nacho Monreal will undoubtedly start after being rested on the weekend.
RCM) Granit Xhaka
He was one of the few Arsenal first-teamers who started Sunday’s match against Manchester United. Still, the Swiss midfielder is expected to start.
LCM) Aaron Ramsey
RAM) Mesut Ozil
He will undoubtedly start. Arsenal need a big performance from Mesut Ozil this evening.
CAM) Jack Wilshere
He will presumably start for Arsenal either in the central attacking midfield position or as part of a midfield three.
LAM) Henrikh Mkhitaryan
Henrikh Mkhitaryan got some minutes on the weekend and should be okay to start this evening.
ST) Alexandre Lacazette
Alexandre LAcazette will lead the line for Arsenal.
