Molde vs Arsenal: Europa League preview

The Gunners have flattered to deceive at times in the Premier League this season but have a perfect record in Europe.

A win in Norway will open up a six-point gap over Molde with two games to play, but the hosts have not lost at home in this competition since 2015.

Molde vs Arsenal is scheduled for an 5.55pm GMT kick-off on Thursday, November 26, 2020.

The match will be held behind closed doors at Aker Stadion.

TV channel: The match will be televised on BT Sport.

Live stream: BT Sport subscribers will be able to watch the match online via the website or BT Sport app.

There remain doubts over Thomas Partey’s fitness, though he is unlikely to travel with Arsenal facing Wolves on Sunday.

Emile Smith Rowe, Miguel Azeez, Ben Cottrell and Folarin Balogun, who made his debut against Dundalk, have all made the trip to Norway.

The likes of Kieran Tierney, Skhodran Mustafi and Granit Xhaka were also pictured. Alex Runarsson will start in goal.

Prediction: Molde 0-2 Arsenal

The Gunners made easy work of Molde in the reverse fixture earlier this month, despite many changes, and should do so again in Norway.
