After 20 straight years in the UEFA Champions League, as The Inquisitr has recounted, Arsenal FC are now in their third consecutive season of competition in UEFA's second-tier tournament, the Europa League. Last season the Gunners advanced all the way to the final of the grueling tournament, which comes with an extra round of play and often greater traveling distances than in the Champions League. Nonetheless, this season they can put themselves in position where advancement to the knockout stage is almost assured, with a convincing win over second-place Belgian First Division club Royal Standard Liège.
But "The Reds" come into London on a sparkling run of form, winning four of their last five, without a loss, and level on points with Arsenal after one round of play as they head into the crucial showdown that will stream live from North London.
