Arsenal FC Starting XI Prediction vs FC Vorskla (Europa League)



When Arsenal FC take on FC Vorskla in UEFA Europa League group stage action tonight, the match will seem pretty insignificant in comparison to what is going on in that part of the world right now.

According to the Ukrainian Navy, Sunday saw the Russian coast guard attack and then seize three ships off the coast of Crimea, which resulted in the wounding of six Ukraine sailors. Martial law has since been imposed in certain parts of the country, and that led UEFA to move this match due to “security concerns.”

With that mind, football seems pretty small, but we have a job to do here so let’s preview the match.
