In 12 matches in this competition, they conceded the first goal 4 times, but got the comeback in 2.
Arsenal come into the game with a lack of motivation after the 1-0 loss to Everton in a Premier League match. In the last qualifying round of the Europa League, the Londoners eliminated Slavia from Prague. For this away game, coach Mikel Arteta is expected to focus on maintaining possession of the ball and organizing attacks on the wings.

The visiting team coach will be without Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Kieran Tierney and David Luiz.
