Arsenal vs Frankfurt − Match preview
Depending on your perspective, this is either a win-win or a lose-lose situation.
Arsenal are currently at the top of Group F. Therefore, a defeat wouldn’t be the worst thing that could happen to them tonight, especially if it pushes Emery closer to the exit door − something that the majority of Arsenal fans seem to want.
Win or draw and Arsenal are guaranteed a place in the Round of 32, but Emery lives on another day. Perhaps.
Arsenal’s supporters have always been a source of fascination and revulsion/amusement for other football fans, but this particular period has been a gift. Emery’s sacking would break a lot of hearts, just not amongst the Arsenal faithful.
Frankfurt, who are third in the group, are capable of causing an upset tonight, though they’re in an awful run of form right now. Die Adler − who, it should be remembered, lost Luka Jovic and Sebastien Haller in the summer − have lost three games on the bounce, but before that they thrashed German giants Bayern Munich 5-1, albeit a Munich side that had been reduced to 10 men.
They lost the reverse fixture 3-0, but in Goncalo Paciencia, Bas Dost, Daichi Kamada and Andre Silva, they have some potent attacking players who could cause Arsenal’s backline all manner of problems.
