After legendary manager Arsene Wenger led Arsenal to 20 straight UEFA Champions League group stage qualifications, the Gunners, now led by second-year Coach Unai Emery, open their third consecutive UEFA Europa League group stage when they travel to Germany to face last season’s surprise Europa League team, Eintracht Frankfurt. In the battle of 2018/2019 losing finalist, Arsenal, against semi-finalist Frankfurt, the German team may hold a slight edge just based on The Eagles’ stellar European record, per Bundesliga.com. The Frankfurt side have won 21 of their 30 Europa League matches, while losing only three with six draws. They’ll put that record on the line in the match that will stream live against the English Premier League giants.
