The Arsenal FC magician, Mesut Ozil, pictured here with his trademark facial expression. Europa League group stage action continues with a large slate of games that includes FC Koln playing host to Arsenal.

Arsenal is cruising through group stage play right now, as there is a large talent gap between themselves and the rest of their group. Despite the issues that Arsenal has had over the past couple of years, they have had no issues navigating through their group so far. Here are the Group H standings as of this moment:

Arsenal, 3-1-0, 10 points
FK Crvena Zvezda, 1-2-1, 5 points
FC Bate Borisov, 1-1-2, 4 points
FC Koln, 1-0-3, 3 points

With a road win on Thursday, Arsenal will be able to lock down the first place position in their group.

For FC Koln, on the other hand, Thursday's match is a must-win, so they will surely be providing some stout opposition to the Arsenal attack.


Here are the odds for Thursday's match:

Arsenal, 2.45
FC Koln, 3.00
Draw, 3.5

Here are the three likeliest outcomes of Thursday's match:

Draw 1-1, 6.5
Arsenal 1-0, 9.0
Arsenal 2-1, 9.5

Given their positioning in the group, Thursday's match certainly doesn't represent a must-win for Arsenal, though things are different for FC Koln.

Arsenal will likely be happy just to conserve energy ahead of an English Premier League match against Burnley FC this weekend.
