Arsenal host CSKA Moscow at the Emirates for the first leg of the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals this evening.
The Gunners, the lone English representatives in the UEFA Europa League knockout phase, won four of their six autumn encounters to top Group H before knocking out European debutants Ostersund in the round of 32 then winning both legs against Milan – 2-0 in Italy and 3-1 in north London.
Third in their UEFA Champions League group during the autumn, CSKA overcame Crvena zvezda in the round of 32, a goalless draw in Belgrade preceding a 1-0 win in Moscow, before ending the hopes of last season’s semi finalists Lyon.
Coverage starts at 7.30pm on BT Sport 2 with live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App.
The return leg will take place a week later, 12th April, at the VEB Arena.
