Arsenal v Rapid Vienna live stream, BT Sport 2, Thursday 3 December, 20.00pm GMT

Mikel Arteta will be looking for a response from his team following Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat by Wolves on Sunday.

The Gunners’ latest setback in the Premier League leaves them down in 13th place in the standings. A title challenge was always likely to be beyond Arteta’s side this term, but it is concerning that Arsenal are already eight points adrift of top spot. A failure to win six of their 10 matches to date underlines the extent to which they have struggled, although the Europa League has at least served as a source of optimism.

Arsenal head into Thursday’s game knowing that the result is immaterial to their hopes of progressing. Arteta’s men took maximum points from their first four games in this competition, meaning they are already assured of their place in the last 32. Another win here would wrap up top spot.

You can get 4/9 for an Arsenal victory with Betfred, as well as £30 in Free Bets + 60 Free Spins when you bet £10.

Rapid Vienna’s hopes of joining Arsenal in the knockout stage hang in the balance. Both they and Molde sit on six points ahead of matchday five, with the latter holding a narrow head-to-head advantage. Regardless of the outcome at the Emirates Stadium, Rapid know that a two-goal win over Molde next week would secure their passage to the next phase of the tournament.

You can get 6/1 for a Rapid Vienna victory with 888Sport, as well as £30 in Free Bets + £10 Casino Bonus when you bet £10.

Arsenal will probably leave out David Luiz after the Brazilian sustained a head injury at the weekend, only to play on until half-time. Nicolas Pepe is suspended domestically but free to play in the Europa League, but Thomas Partey, Gabriel Martinelli, Calum Chambers, Sead Kolasinac and Pablo Mari are all injured.

You can get 17/4 for a draw with Bet365, as well as up to £100 in Bet Credits.

Use a VPN to watch an Arsenal v Rapid Vienna live stream from outside your country

We know, we know, this has crept up on you a bit. So what if you’ve organised a quick winter break and you’re out of the country for the first Champions League week of the season?

We can help. If you’re out of the country for this round of Champions League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address, and you’ll be blocked from watching.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:

1. ExpressVPN (inc. 30-day, money-back guarantee)

The recommended VPN of choice. FourFourTwo’s brainy pals TechRadar love ExpressVPN's lightning-quick connections, security you can trust, and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 plus plenty more. It also comes with that money-back guarantee, has 24/7 support, is currently available for a 49% discount and with three months FREE. Grand.

2. Nord VPN (inc. 30-day, money-back guarantee)

A cheaper option; its cheapest package current averages at a titchy £2.29 per month.

3. IPVanish (inc. seven-day money-back guarantee)

Slightly more expensive but supports up to 10 devices, and you can pay up your hard-earned every three months if required.
