Arsenal's Europa League Game Against Vitoria To Be Played At 3.50PM On A Wednesday
Arsenal's trip to Portuguese outfit Vitoria on matchday four of the Europa League group stage will see them play a 15:50pm kick-off on a Wednesday.
Vitoria, who qualified on Thursday through the play-offs, have requested that all their home games take place at the aforementioned time on Wednesdays.
And with rivals Braga playing Besiktas on 6 November, Arsenal now face a very unusual kick-off time at the Estadio D.Afonso Henriques in Guimarães.
It's not exactly ideal for supporters travelling out on the day of the game but Unai Emery and Arsenal will be relatively pleased with their Europa League group considering the massive difference in Arsenal's travelling last year to this time around, where they have been placed in Group F.
The Gunners', who reached last year's finalist before being beaten by Chelsea in an all-English final in Baku, will play in the earlier 17:55pm kick-off slots for their visits to Eintracht Frankfurt and Standard Liege respectively, with their home games at the Emirates all taking place at 8pm.
