Arteta changes with Kiwior debut but Odegaard not in squad and Jesus absent despite travel

Arsenal continue their quest for glory and return to the Europa League against Sporting Lisbon in the round of 16.

The Gunners’ last Europa League game was in November, but after Barcelona’s elimination they have a very good chance of winning the competition.

The north Londoners also have an excellent record against Sporting, not conceding a goal in four previous encounters.

But the Portuguese are dangerous and ruthlessly beat Tottenham 2-0 in the Champions League earlier this year.

They have also won their last four games and Ruben Amorin’s side are known for playing good football.

However, they struggled against Midtjylland in the first leg of their round of 16 play-off before turning things around.

  • The round of 16 first leg of the Europa League kicks off at 5:45 p.m.
  • Sporting XI: Adan, Reis, St Juste, Coates, Inancio, Esgaio, Morita, Goncalves, Edwards, Trincao, Paulinho.
  • Substitutes: Israel, Santos, Neto, Rochinha, Issahaku, Diomande, Tanlongo, Gomes, Cabral, Chermiti, Mateus, Essugo.
