Arsenal and Everton will be in action representing the Premier League, with the latter looking to get its first victory in this season’s competition after falling 3-0 to Atalanta on Matchday 1.

The Gunners currently lead Group H, but a trip to Belarus could be difficult as Arsene Wenger and Co. take on BATE Borisov, who drew 1-1 with Red Star Belgrade in their first match.

Some of the day’s other intriguing matches include Red Bull Salzburg hosting Marseille and Zenit St Petersburg taking on Real Sociedad in Group L. Zenit and Sociedad combined for nine goals in their first matches, so a victory for either team would put them in control of the group.
