[Teams] Besiktas vs Arsenal: Confimred Line-Ups

By on August 19, 2014

Arsenal must navigate a tricky two legged play off against Besiktas to book their place in the group stages of the Champions League and the first leg takes place in Turkey tonight.

Arsene Wenger will be without Kieran Gibbs after the defender picked up a hamstring injury against Crystal Palace on Saturday, so Nacho Monreal starts at left-back tonight.

Olivier Giroud replaces Yaya Sanogo up front with the young striker left back in North London nursing a hamstring problem. Otherwise, Arsenal line-up as they did at the weekend with Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta in midfield, while Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla are on the wings.

Here are the confirmed teams for the game:


Szczęsny, Debuchy, Chambers, Koscielny, Monreal, Arteta, Wilshere, Ramsey, Cazorla, Sanchez, Giroud.

Subs: Martinez, Bellerin, Miquel, Flamini, Rosicky, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Campbell.


Tolga, Ismail, Motta, Ersan, Pedro, Olcay, Veli, Necip, Oguzhan, Mustafa, Ba

Subs: Gonen, Kurtulus, Sivok, Tore, Koyunlu, Tosun, Boral.
