International – Club Friendlies

Kick-off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: Exploria Stadium.

After having missed out on a top-4 finish the last season in the English top flight, the Gunners will be determined to make amends this time around. During this pre-season tour, they will be taking on MLS squad Orlando City and will be expected to deliver a winning performance this Thursday.

The Gunners had finished 5th in the English league the last season and they had missed out on a top-4 spot by just 2 points. As heart-breaking as it was the blame still lies on them.

They were on course to comfortably make it to the podium, but towards the end of the campaign they dropped several points from winning positions.

Anyhow they are back with a bang now and they will be eager to set the tone even before the commencement of the league campaign. It helps that they are pitted against a rather inexperienced American team.

Meanwhile, Orlando are going through a rather poor stretch of performances at the moment and they are also struggling quite a lot with their back line. Even at their home they have been unable to put forth any kind of dominating performances lately.

By the looks of things, expect a victory for Arsenal this Thursday.
