Arsenal have waited nearly a month for their second Europa League group game after beating Zurich in Switzerland last time out, with Norwegian side Bodo/Glimt visiting London this week.
The Gunners have got back to winning ways in the Premier League over the last couple of weeks, beating both Brentford and Tottenham since Manchester United inflicted their only defeat of the season so far at the start of September.
Mikel Arteta is making this Gunners side into contenders for silverware this season, whether that be at a domestic or European level...or both.
This clash with Bodo/Glimt is just the next step on that road, but one they will relish taking.

Arsenal team news
Only Mohamed Elneny and Emile Smith Rowe are missing for Arsenal, neither of which are new injury problems and therefore shouldn't particularly hamper the Gunners.
But there are likely to be changes as Arteta rests many of his usual starters, meaning more potential chances for the likes of Eddie Nketiah, Marquinhos and goalkeeper Matt Turner.

Arsenal vs Bodo/Glimt score prediction
Even with a rotated side, there is little to suggest that Arsenal shouldn't win this game relatively comfortable. That being said, Bodo/Glimt cannot be underestimated after taking four points from their opening two fixtures, despite the lower quality of Norway's Eliteserien.
As they showed in Zurich on matchday one, Arsenal will have the quality to prevail.
