90+3' Goal! Arsenal 1-1 Slavia Prague (Holes 90+3')
89' Ceballos on for Smith Rowe.
85' Olayinka replaces Traore.
84' Masopust replaces Stanciu.
82' Another good stop, this time from the Slavia keeper from Martinelli, who had taken the ball from Pepe.
78' Pepe, Aubameyang and Elneny on for Saka, Lacazette and Partey.
76' Without wanting to sound like a broken record, but that is another home chance.
Lacazette's cross eventually makes it to Saka, who lays it off to Partey, but he can only curl harmlessly wide.
73' Martinelli, replaces Willian.
69' Double change for Slavia, with Sima and and Dorley off for Lingr and Kuchta.
66' ANOTHER MISS! Again from Lacazette!

Arsenal are camped around the Slavia area as Saka stands up a cross towards the back post. Lacazette is there to meet it, but can only flash his effort high into the stands from close range.
58' SAVE!
Big save from Leno!
53' Gabriel looks to be in a bit of bother as he gets inadvertently with Sima. It looks to be a bit of contact on the ankle and the medics are on.
50' Against the post!
Willian takes the resulting free-kick and looks to whip it around the wall, and goes close but clips the outside of the post.
47' Free kick JUST outside the area for Arsenal as Saka is hauled down by Zima.
There's a question whether it is inside or outside and VAR are checking it... But it looks to be outside and VAR confirms it is.
46' Second Half begins..
H-T Arsenal 0-0 Slavia Prague
43' Lacazette turns after dropping to receive the ball and threads a lovely pass in behind for Saka, who once again darts down the right and crosses into the mix, but it's behind for a corner that eventually comes to nothing.
39' Good stop from the keeper to keep out Holding's header from Cedric's cross.
Just before that, Saka's cross evaded about three Arsenal players who all had a tap in, Gunners getting closer.
37' Another free kick for Arsenal, this time just outside the area as Provod clips Saka, sending him over.
36' First shot on target in the game, but Olayinka does not get enough power on his shot to test Leno.
33' Free kick for Arsenal now as Xhaka is clattered into the back of by Bah. It's certainly a painful one, and he's soon back on his feet.
30' That's a big chance for Saka.
Rob Holding finds the England man again clean through on goal. But again he fluffs his line and curls well wide.
The linesman raises his flag for offside, but replays show Saka was well onside when the ball was played.
28' That's a waste from Lacazette.
Thomas Partey picks up the loose ball and finds the Frenchman following his marauding run.
But the in-form man loses all sense of composure, and lashes the ball well over the bar.
26' Superb delivery from Holding! He flashes a great cross into the area, but Lacazette cannot turn it home.
Saka is then delivering from the right wing too, but Willian's attempt to shoot is intercepted.
A good clearance from Bah at the back post as Saka drives into the area from the right before lofting a cross over to the left.
18' Almost from Holding... He plays a straight, long pass for Saka down the right channel, but it just runs a bit too far for the youngster.
15' Slavia go very close to the opener!
Provod starts the move by sweeping a lovely ball out to Bah who is in all sorts of space. The right-back's cross then falls to Provod after Bellerin's header, & he caught it well but could not quite keep it down.
13' CROSS!
Bellerin is seen away down the right and flashes a cross into the area, but Zima is there to send the ball away.
Dorley takes a first-time shot at goal from outside the box after a corner is repelled, but it strikes a team-mate and bounces clear!
7' Arsenal press up the field as Slavia try to play out and Kolar skews a very wayward ball straight out of play for a throw-in. He still had a little time, but the goalkeeper did not look comfortable on the ball there.
5' ALMOST! Saka almost gives Arsenal the lead with their first attack.
1' First Half begins..
