Arsenal travel to Azerbaijan to face Qarabag in the UEFA Europa League this evening.
The Gunners hope to cement their position as Group E leaders after starting their campaign with a 4-2 win, while their matchday two hosts Qarabag were defeated 2-0 on opening night by Sporting CP in Lisbon.
Whereas Arsenal have never previously met opposition from Azerbaijan, Qarabag’s four matches against English clubs have all ended in defeat, the two games in Baku – against Tottenham in the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League and Chelsea in last season’s UEFA Champions League – both failing to yield a home goal.
The match will be shown live on BT Sport 2 with live streaming via the BT Sport app and BTSport.com
