Where: Emirates Stadium
ARS vs QAR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Arsenal will be rounding off their Champions League group assignments with a hosting of Bundesliga outfit Qarabag FK at the Etihad Stadium, in Manchester, on Wednesday night (IST).
Arsenal have already qualified to the knockout phase of the Europa League as a group winner after drawing the home game against Sporting Lisbon last time around.
Arsenal have been relentless in the Premier League in the last couple of months and it’s the case in the Europa League as well. With four wins from the first five games, the Gunners have 13 points from the first five games. They have kept four clean sheets in Europe, having not conceded since the opening day against Vorskla.
Goals from Aaron Ramsey, Joe Willock and Emile Smith Rowe gave Unai Emery’s men an easy win against Qarabag in the reverse fixture last month, effectively making this match a dead rubber.
While in the Premier League, Gunners are sitting outside the top-4 only on goal difference, and two points adrift of their London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. With the festive period bringing matches in numbers and also a small matter of negotiating an EFL Cup quarter-final match against Tottenham Hotspur, we expect Emery to rotate his entire squad in this match.
There is nothing riding for Qarabag FK in this match for they have already been knocked out after accumulating only three-point from the first five games.
But the prospect of becoming the first Azerbaijani club to win on English soil is something which may drive the visitors at the Emirates Stadium.
However, the odds are pretty much stacked against them. They have made two trips to London in the past, with the recent one coming in the Champions League last season and it’s nothing good for the visitors.
At the Bridge, they were humbled by Chelsea, and even the 6-0 scoreline flattered them at the end. They also faced Tottenham Hotspur a few seasons ago in the Europa League, losing the match 1-3 at now-extinct White Hart Lane.

ARS vs QAR Dream11 TEAM NEWS: Injuries and Suspensions
Arsenal vs Qarabag FK Team News:
Injured – Defender Rob Holding has been ruled out for the rest of the season.
Suspended – None.
Questionable – Midfield duo Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey both are carrying knocks and are expected not to be risked in this match
Note: Arsenal have already topped the game, meaning it’s a dead rubber for the Gunners. You can expect Unai Emery to make wholesale changes in this match. In fact, the former PSG manager could rest all his big guns and offer his fringe players full 90 minutes.
Also, club captain Laurent Koscielny has returned to the team fold after recovering from injury. This game could be a perfect set-up for him to sharpen up match fitness.
Key Players – Iwobi, Elneny
Injured – Qarabag FK are expected to be without Innocent Emeghara. The Swiss striker is suffering from an injury.
Suspended – None.
Questionable – None.
Note: Araz Abdullayev is the likeliest candidate to fill the void left by Emeghara up front. While, Mahir Madatov, Filip Ozobic and Abdellah Zoubir are expected to continue to play in attacking midfield.
Key Players – Mahir Madatov, Filip Ozobic, Abdellah Zoubir
ARS vs QAR Dream11 Playing 11 – (Probable) –
Arsenal– Cech (GK), Jenkinson, Sokratis, Koscielny, Maitland-Niles, Elneny, Guendouzi, Willock, Smith Rowe, Iwobi, Nketiah
Qarabag FK – Vagner (GK), Medvedev, Sadiqov, Rzezniczak, Guerrier, Qarayev, Michel, Madatov, Ozobic, Zoubir, Abdullayev
ARS vs QAR Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Change will be the name of the game as Unai Emery will be looking to keep his big guns fresh ahead of the busy period.
However, Emery has confirmed that Koscielny will start the match, while Sokratis, Maitland or Jenkinson will be expected to give him company at the back.
Willock will be confident after scoring a goal in the Europa League, while Guendouzi and Elneny should be partnering him in the middle.
Here, we have gone with the back four. Both Medvedev and Rzezniczak are Qarabag’s best bet at the back while Jenkinson will be itching for the game time as well.
Ozil has been passed fit and was seen training with his teammates, so we expect him to feature here.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Arsenal are now into a 21 game unbeaten streak after beating Huddersfield at the weekend in the Premier League. This has been quite a turnaround for the Gunners this season with many expecting the transition period to stretch beyond this season.
Arsenal are too strong for them and even with a 2nd string team, a home win is all we can see in this match.
