45'
HT: Standard Liège 0-0 Arsenal. A few chances here and there but both teams haven't really threatened. All to play for in the 2nd half, especially if Arsenal want to win the group.
45'
1 minute added time.
45'
Nelson passes to Saka in the box, he hits it but the keeper saves. From the rebound, he crosses and Nelson's header is gathered.
40'
And Frankfurt have made it 2-1. That means that Arsenal would be going through in 2nd spot, and harder teams that they could face.
39'
Standard Liège fans have just thrown an object at Guendouzi. Luckily it just missed him.
37'
Willock hits a shot over the bar from 25 yards.

26'
Standard Liège have started to get into the game.
18'
Arsenal have started well here and Smith-Rowe looks like a great player for the future.
14'
Smith-Rowe plays a one-two with Lacazette, he dribbles into the box and puts it just wide. Bodart got a toe to it.
12'
Mavropanos tries to clear it but hits it straight at Bastien, but he hits the shot straight at Martínez.
10'
Vitoria Guimaraes have opened the scoring away to Frankfurt. It means a Liège goal would see them go through.
7'
Lacazette hits the wall and Sokratis can't direct his header towards goal. Still 0-0.
6'
Smith-Rowe has just won a free-kick at the edge of the box. A good chance here for Arsenal.
3'
Luiz tries a shot from the halfway line, but surprisingly it goes over the bar. Always worth a go if you see the keeper off his line.
1'
And we're off!!

Ljungberg checking the pitch.
Prev.
We will also let you know what is happening in Germany with Frankfurt and how the group looks.
Prev.
Coincidently the last time Standard Liège kept a clean sheet at home in the Europa League was on 19th September. Does this match have a 0-0 draw written all over it?
Prev.
Arsenal haven't kept a clean sheet away from home since their 3-0 win away to Frankfurt 19th September.
Prev.
Very young team tonight from Arsenal, especially when they need a win to secure top spot.
Prev.
Arsenal XI: Martinez; Luiz, Mavropanos, Sokratis; Maitland-Niles, Willock, Guendouzi, Saka; Smith Rowe, Lacazette, Nelson
Prev.
Standard XI: Bodart, Laifis, Vanheusden, Gavory, Fai, Amallah, Bastien, Cimirot, Carcela-González, M'poku and Emond.
Prev.
Hello and welcome to Belgium for this Europa League match. Arsenal are currently top with 10 points, 3 ahead of Standard Liège. A win for Arsenal sees them top the group and the Belgians go out. A draw for Arsenal would be enough for the Gunners to top the group if Frankfurt fail to win. An Arsenal defeat would still be enough for Arsenal to go through unless Standard Liège win 5-0. In conclusion, both teams will be hoping Frankfurt lose.
