Arsenal vs Bodo/Glimt
Thanks to their postponed UEFA Europa league fixture against PSV, Arsenal find themselves playing catch up in Group A.
That game in hand will come round soon enough, but the visit of Bodo/Glimt is the first hurdle current premier league leaders must overcome, and with five wins in six prior games against Norwegian opposition, one might fully expect them to do so.
The Gunners have been firing on all cylinders when Norwegian sides have previously visited North London. Ultimately, there is a weight of expectation on Arsenal's shoulders in the UEL having progressed through to the knockout stages on their previous four conquests.
Perennial underdogs Bodo/Glimt are once again out to defy all odds after their run to the UEFA Europa conference league quarter finals last year.
A 4-1 victory away at Lillestrom at the weekend served as a perfect preparation against this encounter but can they to stop the gunners? Prediction: Arsenal to win.
