ARS vs FRK Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups

Arsenal travel to Germany to play Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt as the two sides open their Europa League campaign with a game at the Commerzbank Arena.

Frankfurt made all way to the semifinals last year where they lost to the eventual champions Chelsea on penalties. The Bundesliga team will be motivated to at least match the last season’s success and keen as well to show that the team can still compete at the very top level despite a host of superstars leaving the club in summer.

For Arsenal, Europa League is the consolation prize for last season’s inconsistent campaign. Though, it could have been far better had the team won in the final against Chelsea.

Regardless, Unai Emery will definitely set out the Europa League as one of the main targets for his team to achieve this season. However, Arsenal’s faithful will judge the season as a success only if the team manages to finish in the top-four. The consistency in the league is the only reasonable and valid factor for all the Gooners to see the improvement in the team.


Match Details:

The Europa League match will be played between Eintracht Frankfurt and Arsenal at Commerzbank-Arena, in Frankfurt, Hesse, Germany. The ground has a capacity of 51,500.

The game will start at 10:25 PM (IST), on Thursday, September 19.


Broadcast details:

Eintracht Frankfurt Team News:

  • Luka Jovic, Ante Rebic and Sebastien Haller all left the club during the summer transfer window. The trio ended up with 56 of the 90 goals scored by the club last season.
  • While from the current crop of players, Eintracht will be without Jonathan de Guzman. The former Swansea City player is recovering from a muscular problem.
  • Midfielder Mijat Gacinovic has been ruled out after the 24-year-old sustained an injury in training last week.
  • The veteran defender Marco Russ remains out after the 34-year-old ruptured an Achilles tendon during Frankfurt’s Europa League match.
  • In addition, Sebastian Rode and Goncalo Paciencia are both doubts and will face a late fitness test.

Possible Ins or Outs of this game:

  • Adi Hütter dropped striker Dejan Joveljic from his playing 11 for the last game, bringing in new signing Andre Silva instead into the starting line-up. However, Joveljic may start alongside Silva if Gonçalo Paciência fails to recover from his injury.
  • Dominik Kohr is an option in the midfield, but Djibril Sow and Timothy Chandler should start the match.

Eintracht Frankfurt Probable XI: Gulácsi (GK), Hartmann, Candido, Kampl, Martel, Bidstrup, Laimer, Krauß, Orban, Poulsen, Werner


Arsenal Team News:

  • The biggest player missing from Arsenal’s squad is Alexandre Lacazette. The former Lyon man has been ruled out for six weeks following an ankle injury before the recent international break.
  • While Arsenal’s long-term absentees Dinos Mavropanos, Hector Bellerin, and Kieran Tierney have all returned to training, but it’s too early still for the players to be considered for the first-team action.
  • Mesut Ozil and Sokratis have been left out of Arsenal’s traveling squad for the Europa League game.

Possible Ins or Outs of this game:

  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Nicolas Pepe should start for Arsenal, but Emery is expected to make changes to the team which was pegged back from a 0-2 lead to a 2-2 daw by Watford at the weekend.
  • The former Sevilla manager may opt for a more defensive approach here and could name Granit Xhaka, Lucas Torreira, and Matteo Guendouzi in the midfield.
  • In that Case, Dani Ceballos may move further upfield or Reiss Nelson could get the start here. Joe Willock is an option as well if Emery decides to go for fresh legs in the midfield.
  • Callum Chambers may get a start at the back.

Arsenal Probable XI (Very tentative): Leno (GK), Maitland-Niles, Chambers, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Willock / Guendouzi, Ceballos, Torreira / Nelson, Pepe, Aubameyang


Likely to score:

  • For Eintracht Frankfurt – Andre Silva, Daichi Kamada
  • For Arsenal Nicolas Pepe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Captain and Vice-Captain options:

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: Arsenal’s biggest threat on any given day. The Gabon international has scored the most goals for Arsenal since he headed to North London in January 2018. As always, he will be a threat.

Season:

  • Games: 05
  • Goals: 05

Nicolas Pepe: He is still new to the Premier League and it seems that he needs time to fully settle down at the Emirates Stadium. But he is a talent, and we all know that. It’s only a matter of time.

Last season:

  • Games: 38
  • Goals: 22
  • Assists: 11

From Frankfurt:

  • Andre Silva
  • Dominik Kohr

Suggested combination:


ARS vs FRK Dream11 potential winner:

Eintracht are unbeaten against English opponents, and we can see that run stretched out here as well.

A draw is our call.
