Preview: Sevilla vs Arsenal in the Champions League

A mostly full night time Emirates Stadium.

ARSENAL will travel to Spain to take on Sevilla in the Champions League tonight, with the chance to win away in the competition for the first time since December 2016.

After drawing 2-2 at London rivals Chelsea on Saturday, Arsenal can go top of Champions League group B with a victory.

Responding to criticism following Arsenal’s loss against Lens Mikel Arteta said: “There were a few from that game, especially that in the Champions League you cannot give anything away.

“Both boxes are tremendously important to have control of the game, and there are going to be moments that can get away very quickly.

“To lose the game the way we did, even though looking about two times, we didn’t deserve that result.”

In their last league match Sevilla drew at home to league leaders Real Madrid, initially taking the lead courtesy of a David Alaba own-goal.

The Spanish side have already faced off against English opposition this term, when they lost on penalties to Manchester City in the UEFA Super Cup in August.

After his arrival as Sevilla boss earlier this month this fixture will be Diego Alonso’s first in European competition, having never previously managed in the continent.
