First leg 1-1.

Arsenal will play Benfica in their Europa League round of 32 clash at a neutral venue for the first the fixtures between the sides. Due to UK travel restrictions with Portugal, the match will be played in Rome, with the situation surrounding home and away goals still unconfirmed.


The restrictions in place in the UK force all those travelling to Portugal to self-isolate for ten days upon returning home, a measure that Arsenal simply can’t afford given their fixture fixture commitments.
