Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Arsenal: Europa League – Match Preview

Two of last season’s final four in the Europa League meet in the opening round this campaign as Eintracht Frankfurt host Arsenal.

Eintracht Frankfurt were beaten on penalties by eventual winners Chelsea in the semi-finals last campaign, drawing both legs 1-1.

The German side have made a steady start to the Bundesliga season, winning two and losing two of their first four games.

Arsenal were frustratingly held at Watford on the weekend, losing a 2-0 lead late on at Vicarage Road.

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has made an excellent start to the campaign, with five goals in as many games.
