Arsenal are hoping to book their spot in the Champions League knockout rounds as they host RC Lens tonight.

The Gunners lost in France earlier this season so are out to make amends in front of their home fans as they look to advance to the last-16 stage for the first time in seven years, when they went on to be humbled 5-1 by Barcelona.

Arsenal vs Lens prediction

Lens got the better of Arsenal earlier this season, but the Gunners endured an off night and that is unlikely to happen in front of their own fans.

The Ligue 1 side have been impressive at the back in Europe but you would not bet against the hosts being in potent form with qualification and top spot up for grabs.

Arsenal to win, 2-0.

Head to head (h2h) history and results
