Arsenal vs FC Zurich | When Arsenal welcomes last-place FC Zurich to the Emirates, they will have another opportunity to clinch first place. Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal has a second chance to win Group A when they meet FC Zurich at the Emirates after squandering an earlier opportunity to do so.
Arsenal has had success reenacting its triumphs at home in Europe, winning 4 of the group’s 5 games. After their shocking loss to PSV the last time out, the Gunners would prefer to make amends. Arsenal will be seeking to dominate their opponents after winning 11 of their previous meetings at the Emirates.
The team currently leads the group by two points. The Premier League leaders would want to win the group finale and gracefully advance to the knockout stage. Additionally, the Gunners’ standing inside the group may define their rivalry in the latter phases of the competition.
Zurich presently occupies the lowest spot in the standings after playing five games, winning just one of them. While Bodo/Glimt might lose their Conference League position if they lose to PSV if Zurich leaves the Emirates with three points, they could replace them if they defeat PSV. The main issue for Franco Foda would be his defence. With 15 goals allowed in just 5 games, the Swiss side has the poorest defensive record in the Europa League. Although a win for Zurich seemed unlikely given Arsenal’s strong streak.
