Arsenal are, barring an almighty collapse, already in the Europa League semi-finals. But the formalities must take place and that means the Gunners travelling to Russia to take on CSKA Moscow.

The Gunners completed a 4-1 win at the Emirates in the first leg of their quarter final clash last Thursday. Braces for both Alexandre Lacazette and Aaron Ramsey put Arséne Wenger’s side firmly in control.

Of course, as Barcelona discovered in the Champions League, it’s risky to take an opponent likely. So Arsenal will need to produce a professional performance in Russia’s capital.

It’s why, despite their advantage, Wenger is likely to play a strong side. Our unique algorithm has predicted the Arsenal XI it believes will start the game.
