Arsenal set to face Benfica in UEL Round of 32 0

Posted on December 15, 2020 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal will once again attempt to use the UEFA Europa League as a way to fight their way back into the UEFA Champions League this year. They’re tried and failed to win the competition over the course of the last few years, even reaching the final, but six wins out of six in the group stage is as good of a start as they could’ve hoped for.

Their next task will be to navigate past Portuguese giants Benfica in the Round of 32, who finished second in their group behind Rangers. They’re also in 2nd place in the Primeira Liga too with seven wins from nine games thus far.

The Premier League season for Arsenal simply isn’t going to plan and that may be an understatement, but outside of that, it does feel as if the Gunners are making some real progress in the UEFA Europa League. Their win over Dundalk last night ensured that they are officially the only club in the UCL or UEL to win all six of their group games this season.

After the full time whistle had blown, manager Mikel Arteta spoke with the media after another strong European outing.

It’s time for another distraction from the misery of the Premier League as Arsenal prepare for their final game of the 2020 UEFA Europa League group stage. The Gunners will be locking horns with Dundalk for the second time this season, and while they’ve already secured their place in the knockout stage, a win here would make them the only club in the Champions League and Europa League to win all six group games during the campaign. It may not be much, but it’s something.

Ahead of the game, manager Mikel Arteta spoke with the media.

While Arsenal have struggled to find consistency in the Premier League so far this season, they do seem to be enjoying themselves in the UEFA Europa League. That trend continued last night as they put four past Rapid Vienna at the Emirates, continuing their surge towards the knockout stage in the process.

After the win, manager Mikel Arteta was happy to speak with the media as the Gunners attempt to turn things around pretty quickly heading into one of their most important games of the season so far – the North London derby.

Arsenal fans are set to return to the Emirates in their limited numbers later tonight as the Gunners prepare to lock horns with Rapid Vienna.

While the atmosphere isn’t exactly going to be the same with only a few thousand supporters being permitted to enter into the ground, it’s definitely a step in the right direction. Alas, it does come at a time when Arsenal fans know that their passage into the knockout stage has been secured, with many wondering what kind of side Mikel Arteta is going to put out.

The UEFA Europa League may not be everyone’s favourite competition, but there’s no way of denying just how efficient Arsenal tend to be when they play in it.

They picked up another win last night as they ran out 3-0 winners over Molde, confirming their position as one of the leading contenders to win the whole thing. It was the definition of a well-rounded performance and manager Mikel Arteta recognised that, talking through the ins and outs of the win with the media after the game.

It’s another week of European action for clubs across the continent and that includes Arsenal, with the Gunners hoping to take another big step towards the knockout stage of the UEFA Europa League. There are some hefty expectations when it comes to what the club can achieve in the competition, but as we all know, that’s been the case for the last few years.

Mikel Arteta should and will be feeling confident heading into the game against Molde, and before the game, he spoke with the media about what he expects to see.

It’s safe to say that things haven’t quite gone to plan so far this season for Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, and while it hasn’t exactly been a disaster, it definitely hasn’t been perfect, either.

Still, while the critics have been out in force to point out the Spaniard’s mistakes, there is also a general acceptance of the fact that he is a new manager who is still attempting to learn the ropes. As such, there are also going to be some progressive decisions make that counter some of the errors.

Things didn’t start off particularly well for Arsenal last night at the Emirates, but in the end, they overcame the early adversity and pulled out a strong 4-1 win over Molde. The win puts the Gunners on nine points after three games in the UEFA Europa League group stage, and you’d think that should give them a strong enough platform to go on and qualify for the knockout stage.

After the match, manager Mikel Arteta spoke with the media as Arsenal built up momentum heading into the Aston Villa game on Sunday.

While Arsenal may slowly but surely be getting their Premier League campaign back on track, the condensed nature of the 2020/21 season means that the UEFA Europa League is also moving at a pretty quick pace. The Gunners will be back in action tonight as they prepare to host Molde at the Emirates, and if they win, they’ll have one foot in the knockout stage.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, who guided his team to a big win over Manchester United last weekend, recently spoke with the media ahead of a crunch game for the club’s European ambitions this season.
