Possible Arsenal Line Up Against Rennes

16 Mars 2019

In England, Arsenal will be hoping to overturn a 3-1 deficit they incurred in France in the first leg last week against Rennes.

Arsenal are coming on the back of a morale-boosting 2-0 win over Manchester United last week and will be feeling positive regarding their top four prospects after Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur both dropped points.

The German shot-stopper could be handed another start when Arsenal battle French side, Rennes, at the Emirates for a place in the quarter finals of the Europa League.

Trailing 3-1 from the first leg, the Gunners need a repeat of their home win in the last 32.

Arsenal defender Sokratis Papasthapolous will miss the match with a ban as he received a red card in the first leg at the Rennes' Roazhon Park stadium.

"But after this red card, it's different, more than we wanted". The red card had been given about a month ago, so it is a bit unusual it has come 48 hours before the game, but it is what it is and we have to make do with it.

"We knew before the game about our chance because Manchester United had one point more than us".

While Sokratis will have to sit out the match owing to suspension, Arsenal have received some good news with regards to Alexandre Lacazette.

"The red card had been given about a month ago, so it is a bit unusual it has come 48 hours before the game, but it is what it is and we have to make do with it".

We should be confident after beating a massive team like Man United (who made mincemeat of PSG) but please don't think it is going to be an easy ride all night okay?

"The referee will be disappointed when he sees it as I don't think it is a penalty", United interim manger Solskjaer complained.

The noises coming out of Rennes have continued to insist that Arsenal are the favourites in the tie despite the result in the first leg and the French side are still the underdogs. But we are going to try to impose our gameplan to come back against them.

Here's everything you need to know about a match in which Arsenal will have to pull off a hard comeback.
