And that's full-time!

A pretty enjoyable game all in all and Arsenal are through to the next round of the Europa League.

90+1' 

The good news for Arsenal is that Koln have smashed BATE which means that as things stand Arsenal are through.

88' 

Arsenal making a big late push for a winner here.

Red Star looking to hold on and take the point.

85' 

Nervous moments when Wilshere goes down clutching his knee.

Luckily he's back up straight away.

81' 

WHAT A CHANCE!

Red Star could have won it there.

The ball is played through to Boyake again and he finds space and gets through on goal.

However again he can't find the target.

79' 

Another chance goes begging for Walcott following good one-touch football with Giroud and Elneny.

Walcott swivels in the box to try and connect with a volley but he totally misses the ball.

76' 

Chance for Walcott as Wilshere plays a good ball into the box. Walcott steals across his man but his header goes well wide.

73' 

Arsenal clearly getting more and more frustrated with this stubborn Red Star team.

This would be a great point for the Serbian side.

70' 

Change for Red Star as well.

Milic is on for Kanga.

He doesn't look too happy to be taken off.

68' 

Arsenal change now.

Willock comes off following a good performance and Arsenal send on Nketiah.

It looks like Wilshere will drop a little deeper next to Coquelin.

64' 

WHAT A CLEARANCE THAT IS!

Le Tallec, who is the brother of former Liverpool man Anthony, makes an incredible overhead kick clearance on the line when Wilshere lifts it over the keeper and looks certain to score.

60' 

Roars from the Arsenal fans as Wilshere goes down in the box but the referee isn't interested.

It's the same a bit later when they think the ball hits a hand. Hint it doesn't.

56' 

Terrific ball in from Srnic from the right and Boayake nearly turns it home.

Ah the flag was up for offside against the striker.

55' 

Nelson gets the crowd going as he picks up the ball and starts running at the Red Star defence.

It takes a sliding challenge to bring him down.

He's very special this kid.

53' 

Another blocked shot for Giroud.

He's getting closer. That hamstring pull feels a long time ago now...

51' 

A spell of Red Star possession ends when Arsenal counter but Giroud's pass lets the team down right at the critical moment.

47' 

Giroud gets the half under way with the first shot but it isn't troubling anyone.

46' 

And we're back under way, no changes to tell you about.

45' 

Right and that's half-time.

A fairly lively end to the half after a quiet start and really the visitors have a good claim to be ahead.

45' 

WHAT A CHANCE THAT IS!

Oh Boayake that was such a good chance. He is sent away thanks to a wonderful pass but when one-on-one with Macey he skies it over.

43' 

Elneny spreads a wonderful ball out to Walcott but the forward's final ball is so poor.

40' 

Decent effort from Red Star to get forward with Srnic and Kanga but the move breaks down. They are getting space though.

38' 

Wilshere does well to hold off a challenge and then slips in Maintland-Niles.

Unfortunately his shot or cross goes miles over.

36' 

SAVE!

Slight break in play as Borjan is down and there's a huge roar from the Red Star fans as he gets up.

Then from the corner Radonjic gets a header away and Macey adjusts brilliant to tip it onto the bar. Terrific from the Arsenal youngster.

35' 

Then Red Star go down the other end and get a shot away with Srnic but he slips as he takes it and it's easy for Macey to palm over.

34' 

Great chance for Arsenal as Willock wins the ball and slips it into Giroud.

The pass is narrowly over-hit and the keeper does well to get out and block.

33' 

Oh what a chance that is for Red Star!

Srnic sends in a beautiful ball over from the right but it narrowly evades a Red Star player and Debuchy puts it behind.

Arsenal deal with the corner.

31' 

Ah that's poor from Coquelin. He wins the ball back and then bursts forward into the attack. He has three options but manages to pass to the defender.

29' 

There's not a lot going on at the moment.

Arsenal are dominating the ball as you might expect but they're not creating a lot with it.

25' 

Some suggestions that Chelsea have fans in attendance to watch Boakye. They won't have seen much so far.

22' 

I'm not sure if comfortable is the word to describe Red Star but they certainly haven't been too troubled. Reminder that they have the best defensive record in this Europa League group.

19' 

Arsenal keeping up the pressure but so far not creating anything too concrete.

16' 

Wilshere is on corner duty tonight and it'd be good if he can get a little more whip on them.

14' 

Stojković is penalised for a foul on Giroud but it comes to nothing. This is a surprisingly open game.

12' 

Another nervous moment for Arsenal as Radonjic gets free down the left but his touch lets him down and it goes out of play.

10' 

Giroud is down and clutching his hamstring, surely he's not going to carry on here?

He is you know. And he gets a shot away at goal! It's well saved by the keeper though.

8' 

Slight break in play as Red Star defender Le Tallec receives some treatment fllowing a clash of heads.

5' 

I might have jinxed the Gunners there. Slightly nervy kicking from Macey nearly lets Red Star in but Arsenal re-group.

3' 

Arsenal have started relatively well here, enjoying good spells of possession.

I would say that the atmosphere is, calm.

All the noise is from the away fans.

1' 

We're under way at the Emirates.

 

Right we're about five minutes away from kick-off.

What are your predictions?

 

 
 

Good signs for the Arsenal fans going to the game.

Arsenal have only failed to score once in the last 26 games in European competition (a 2-0 UEFA Champions League defeat to Barcelona in February 2016).

 

A reminder of how things look in Group H.

Arsenal are in a great position but Red Star could really use a result from this.

Europa League Group H
 

You imagine the noise in the away end is going to be good...

 

RED STAR TEAM

Borjan, Stojković, Le Talek, Savić, Gobeljić, Donald, Krstičić, Kanga, Srnić, Radonjić, Boaći.

They struggled last time but they'll take heart from Koln's gutsy performance in London earlier in the group.

 

ARSENAL TEAM

Macey, Debuchy, Elneny, Holding, Nelson, Coquelin, Willock, Maitland-Niles, Walcott, Wilshere, Giroud

11 changes for Arsenal from the weekend, a clear sign of priorities from Arsene Wenger.

However this is a great chance for a lot of these youngsters.

 

Good evening and welcome to live coverage of Arsenal's home match against Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League.
