- 1st Half
Arsenal get the game underway in what is a crunch tie
Kick off is less than five minutes away as both sides get ready to make their way out on to the pitch.
Slavia Prague are looking to reach a European semi-final for the first time since 1995-96 when they made it to the last four of the UEFA Cup before losing to Bordeaux.
Pépé starts tongiht and will be keen to grab another goal against Slavia Prague having come off the bench in the first leg to score
Arsenal's Quarter-final record should give them some hope. They have won both of their previous UEFA Europa League quarter-final ties, beating CSKA Moskva in 2017/18 and Napoli in 2018/19. Although they remain unbeaten at this stage, this is the first time they have failed to win the home first leg
Slavia Prague will be looking for their third British scalp of the competition having already knocked out Rangers and Leicester City.
Ohh how the times have changed. The last time these sides meet was in the 2007/08 Champions League group stage. Wenger's side ran out 7-0 winners that day. Making it the Gunners' biggest European home win and the Czech club's heaviest continental defeat.
Slavia Prague will be confident they can get something out of this Quarter-final clash. The Czech side are in fine form at the moment as they are unbeaten in 31 games at home! It's going to be tough match for the Gunners.
Head of tonight's game the Arsenal boss made no mistake the importance of progressing in the competition "The game can put us in a position to go into the semi-final of a European competition. This is exactly where this club has to be and that’s why we have to do our best to earn that.”
And here is the squad Arteta has chosen to battle for a semi-final place in the competition:
Surprisingly Aubameyang doesn't even make the bench, so the task of grabbing those vital away goals falls to Lacazette who leads the line.
Here is how the home side have set their team out:
The Czech giants will be without Ondrej Kudela after the 34-year-old was handed a 10-game ban by UEFA after being found guilty of racially abusing Ranger's Glen Kamara.
But they will be pleased to the return of Petr Ševčík to the starting 11
Run away league leaders Slavia Prague come into tonight's game having beaten local rival Sparta Prague 2-0 at home to extend their lead at the top of the Czech First League to 16 points.
While the Gunners will be buoyed by their much needed 3-0 victory against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on the weekend. It was a performance that went some way to help reinstill a winning mentality in this inconsistent Arsenal side.
