  • Arsenal currently top the Group B table on 6 points.
  • Sevilla are third on the log on 2 points.

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal will be seeking to bounce back to winning ways when Spanish outfit Sevilla come visiting in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night.

The Gunners saw their unbeaten run in the 23/24 Premier League brought to an end in controversial fashion over the weekend following their 1-0 defeat against Newcastle in a match where Arteta heavily criticized the officiating.

As they seek to move on from that loss, they head into the clash against Sevilla knowing that three points could be enough to book their spot in the last 16 of the European competition with two group games to spare.

This could be possible should they complete a double over the Rojiblancos and PSV Eindhoven fail to beat Lens in the other Group B match.

On their part, Sevilla are still chasing a first win in the competition this season (D2 L1) and will be hoping to get up and running.

They are up against a difficult task if history is anything to go by as they have won just one of their 11 away games against English sides in all European competition (D5 L5), beating Manchester United 2-1 in the 2017/18 Champions League round of 16.

It remains to be seen whether Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard will be available for this game after missing the encounter against Newcastle United on Saturday – his first omission from the club’s matchday squads since September 2022.

Gabriel Jesus, Thomas Partey and Emile Smith Rowe will all be missing for the next few weeks at least, while Jurrien Timber remains a long-term casualty.

On the other side, Sergio Ramos was not included in Sevilla’s squad for the trip to London having picked up a calf issue that kept him out of the game against Celta Vigo, while goalkeeper Orjan Nyland and left-back Marcos Acuna, who both started in the first leg, were injured in that game and remain in Spain.

Former Manchester City man Fernando missed the game with a back complaint but has been deemed fit enough for the trip. Squad players Marcao and Alfonso Pastor remain out.
