The Arsenal vs. Sporting match will be played on Thursday, November 8, at the Emirates Stadium, London. This is the fourth round match of UEFA Europa League group E. Arsenal is currently first on the table with nine points, while Sporting is second on the table with six points at the moment.
They played only one match against each other so far. Two weeks ago, Arsenal won the match played in Portugal by 1:0.
Arsenal recorded a draw in the match against Liverpool last weekend and showed the world they will fight for the place in the top four this season. Unai Emery just took over the club from Arsene Wenger and nobody expected that Arsenal, without major changes, can play a significant role in Premier League this season. Emery proved them all wrong, but he has an international trophy in sight as well. If Arsenal win the match against Sporting, they will secure the first place in the group two rounds before the end of the group phase.
