The 2018/19 Europa League group stages start this week and Arsenal are one of two Premier League clubs hoping to make a big impact in the competition this season.
Gunners fans will be hoping Unai Emery can sprinkle some of the Europa League magic he produced during his time at Sevilla. The Spanish boss won the Europa League three times in a row during his spell at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, making them the record winners of the tournament.
However, Arsenal will hope winning the Europa League is a stepping stone to the Champions League next season. They begin their campaign with a home match against Vorskla of Ukraine. Read on for our Arsenal vs Vorskla predictions.

1. Odds Preview
Given the calibre of the opposition, which is unknown to many fans of English football, Arsenal start this match as the huge favourites to take maximum points. In fact, one glance at the Arsenal vs Vorskla betting odds shows the Gunners are just 1.10 with 1XBET to win the match.
This is arguably Arsenal’s easiest game of the group and they cannot afford any slip-ups with a long away trip to Qarabag and tough fixture at Sporting Lisbon to follow. Arsenal have lost only one of their last nine home competitive games in all competitions and that was against Premier League champions, Manchester City.
Vorskla finished third in the Ukraine Premier League for only the second time in their history last season. It was a good achievement and they are entering the group stages of the Europa League for the second time.
However, they finished bottom of the group and may struggle to better that performance this season. Vorskla are the massive outsiders for this game, priced at 35.00 and the draw is on offer at 12.00.
