Arsenal have shown their lack of stability this season, although they have made a poor start. After one or two victories, the Gunners collapse like some invisible balance. The closest was a leg-kick against Leicester in the pressing match of mikel Arteta’s students. Ignoring the unsomed result, Aubameyang and his team-mates will again aim for a win against Dundalk in the Europa League second round.
In the opening round, goals from David Luiz and Nketiah helped Arsenal struggle against Rapid Wien. This was also an important victory for Arteta, as the Austrian runners-up were their biggest rivals in Group B.
Overcoming a tough opponent in the opening game, the Gunners are aiming for the next three points against Dundalk – who are currently bottom of the table. It was arsenal’s first home game in the Europa League this year. Not only will it mean a score, it will be an opportunity for Mr Arteta’s pupils to regain confidence after their defeat to Leicester in the Premier League.
On Dundalk’s side, there’s not much to say about this Representative from Ireland. They need to show more in the coming games, if they are to think about either spot going into the round of 16.
Theoretically, the chances remain intact for all four teams in Group B, as they have five games left to compete for the top two and second place. With this motivation, and the possibility of still being able to move on, Dundalk of course refused to surrender and the Irish side’s determination was also something Arsenal needed to be careful .
