After starting pre-season with a 5-1 win over Ipswich Town in a behind-closed-doors friendly, Arsenal traveled to Germany to continue their preparations for the new campaign.
Mikel Arteta’s side will face newly promoted Bundesliga side Nurnberg, who play at the Max-Morlock Stadion.
Nuremberg have been a yo-yo club for the past half-decade, promoted in 2018 only to be relegated the following year. After two more seasons in the German second division, they have been promoted again and will take part in the next Bundesliga campaign.
The Sporting News brings you all the information you need to know ahead of the game.
When will the match take place?
The match will be played on Friday, July 8 and kicks off at 4:30 p.m. UK time (11:30 a.m. Eastern).
It will take place at the Max-Morlock Stadion in Nuremberg, with a capacity of approximately 50,000 spectators. The ground was opened in 1928.
The game is Arsenal’s second game of the 2021/22 pre-season, with matches against Everton, Orlando City SC and Chelsea scheduled in the United States over the next month. They conclude the pre-season with a match against Sevilla at home in the Emirates Cup.
How to watch Arsenal vs Nuremberg
The match will be streamed live on Arsenal.com and the Arsenal app in all countries except Germany. It will be priced at £5.99 for UK viewers. In Austria and Germany, the game will be shown on Servus TV.
How could Arsenal line up?
Given that this is a pre-season fixture, it’s not entirely clear who will start for Arsenal, but it’s likely most of the players who played against Ipswich could be involved. Talented young left-back Lino Sousa could be in demand, while Eddie Nketiah is expected to start up front.
It’s possible that Gabriel Jesus is involved to some degree after starting training this week following his move from Manchester City. Goalkeeper Matt Turner and winger Marquinhos could also receive their first outings for Arsenal.
Possible Arsenal team: Turner – Cedric, White, Mari, Sousa – Matt Smith, Patino, Lokonga – Nelson, Nketiah, Balogun.
The Nuremberg squad could include Mats Moller Daehli, who was at Manchester United as a youth and later played for Cardiff.
What is Arsenal’s pre-season schedule?
After their game in Germany, Arsenal are set to travel to the United States, where they will face Everton, Orlando City and Chelsea. Their final game of the pre-season sees them host Sevilla in the Emirates Cup.
