Arsenal vs Lens live score, updates, lineups, and result from the UEFA Champions League group stage

Arsenal suffered a Champions League blip when they lost 2-1 despite taking the lead at Lens on matchday two.

But if the Premier League leaders can avenge that defeat by beating the Ligue 1 club on Wednesday they will book their place in the knockout rounds. Indeed, only a point is required to guarantee their place in the draw for the Round of 16.

Lens are level on five points with PSV, who travel to bottom club Sevilla in Group B.

The Europa League holders have only won two matches in all competitions this season but remain in the hunt and travel to Lens on the final matchday, when everything could still be up for grabs depending on what happens in north London.

The Sporting News is following the Arsenal vs. Lens match live, providing score updates, commentary, and highlights as they happen.

55 mins prior to kickoff: This is how Lens line up. Fulgini and Haidara into the XI. Franck Haise will be hoping his 3-4-3 does the trick against Arsenal once again.

1 hour prior to kickoff: Here’s the Arsenal team. Kai Havertz is rewarded for his match-winning exploits at Brentford with a start. David Raya is back between the posts as expected.

1 hr 5 mins prior to kickoff: Make that 2-0 to Sevilla! Youssef En-Nesyri doubles the advantage for the serial Europa League winners. Arsenal are heading through.

1 hr 25 mins prior to kickoff: On the other hand, pretty much all jeopardy from an Arsenal point of view can be removed before they even kick a ball tonight. Sevilla are 1-0 up against PSV in Group B’s early kickoff thanks to Champions League old stager Sergio Ramos. If the scoreline stays that way, Arsenal will be through and only need to worry about avoiding defeat tonight to seal top spot.

1 hr 35 mins prior to kickoff: Having won three games out of four on their Champions League return, Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat to Lens earlier in the campaign looks and feels like nothing more than a blip. Win tonight and book a place in the knockout rounds with a game to spare and the reverse at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis will have that status for posterity. But if Franck Haise’s men can upset the form book again then there could be all sort of carnage on matchday six, with the Gunners potentially needing something from a trip to PSV. It’s a scenario Mikel Arteta and his players will be desperately keen to avoid.

2 hours prior to kickoff: Hello and welcome to The Sporting News’ live coverage of Arsenal vs. Lens in the Champions League. If Mikel Arteta’s men can avenge the sole blemish on their European campaign so far they will book their place in the last 16 with a game to spare.
