Team News

Rapid Vienna
The home side unnamed player has tested positive for coronavirus in the build-up to the game and will therefore miss this match.

However, he was not in close contact with any of his teammates so Kuhbauer still has pretty much a full-strength squad to choose from.

Taxiarchis Fountas has four goals in four league appearances this season and is one to watch for Rapid.

Rapid Vienna possible starting lineup:
Strebinger; Stojkovic, Hofmann, Barac; Arase, Grahovac, Ljubicic, Ullmann; Murg, Kara, Fountas

Rapid Vienna form (all competitions): WLDWWW

Arsenal
Summer signing Thomas Partey made his debut from the bench against Man City and is in contention to make his full debut here.

There will be no Mesut Ozil or Sokratis Papastathopoulos as both players were left of Arsenal’s Europa League squad.

With Sunday’s home league meeting with Leicester City likely taking priority, Arteta could turn to academy graduates Reiss Nelson, Eddie Nketiah and Joe Willock.

Bukayo Saka, who was directly involved in more goals in the Europa League last season than any other Arsenal player, is expected to be given a breather.
Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Runarsson; Luiz, Gabriel, Kolasinac; Cedric, Elneny, Partey, Maitland-Niles; Willock, Nketiah, Nelson
Arsenal form (all competitions): WWLWWL

Prediction: Rapid Vienna 1-2 Arsenal
