Three added minutes.
- GoalPierre-Emerick AubameyangArsenal
GOAL! Frankfurt 0-3 Arsenal (Aubameyang). He has his goal. Eintracht give the ball away softly and Saka plays in Aubameyang, who slots past Trapp. Job done.
- GoalBukayo SakaArsenal
GOAL! Frankfurt 0-2 Arsenal (Saka). Arsenal break from a Frankfurt free-kick, Pepe sqaures to Saka, and the 18-year-old - 25 yards out - picks his spot and curls and effort past Trapp to secure the win. He's deserved that goal.
- Yellow cardCalum ChambersArsenal
Chambers joins those in the book.
What a miss! Chambers squares for Aubameyang, unmarked and eight yards out, but he pokes wide with the goal gaping!
- Yellow cardDaichi KamadaEintracht Frankfurt
Kamada booked for a robust challenge.
- Red cardDominik KohrEintracht Frankfurt
RED CARD! Saka runs at the defence and Kohr comes across to try and stop him, but misses the ball, catches some of the man and picks up a second booking.
A deflected shot loops to Saka, but the ball just takes too long to drop and by the time he can shoot Trapp is already at his throat. Saka almost creates a chance for Aubameyang seconds later but is thwarted by a sliding block.
Kostic attempts an overhead kick but can;t keep his effort on target.
- OffDanny da CostaEintracht Frankfurt
- OnTimothy ChandlerEintracht Frankfurt
That's his last action. Chandler takes his place.
Frankfurt win their ninth corner. Luiz heads it halfway clear and Da Costa then fires over.
- OffJoe WillockArsenal
- OnDani CeballosArsenal
Willock, who has faded, makes way for Ceballos.
SIlva gets on the end of an inswinging Kostic cross but doesn't get enough pace on the header, making it a comfy save for Martinez.
The lively Kostic finds space again and tries his luck from a tight angle but can't hit the target, fizzing the ball narrowly wide instead.
- OffBas DostEintracht Frankfurt
- OnGonçalo PaciênciaEintracht Frankfurt
Paciencia comes on for Dost. Frankfurt haven't found their rhythm after the break.
Frankfurt take the free-kick short for Kostic to cross, but he sends the ball straight into the stands.
- Yellow cardJoe WillockArsenal
And now Willock is booked for tripping Kostic on the edge of the box.
- Yellow cardDominik KohrEintracht Frankfurt
Kohr hacks down Pepe and is cautioned.
- OffEmile Smith RoweArsenal
- OnNicolas PépéArsenal
Smith Rowe, who has been largely quiet, is replaced by Pepe.
And Xhaka hits the bar! With Trapp well off his line, Xhaka goes for goal and is inches away from scoring as the ball crashes off the bar.
Rather fortuitously, Chambers win an attacking free-kick down by the right corner flag. The home fans aren't happy.
Nothing comes of that corner.
Willock carries the ball forward brilliantly, evading a number of tackles, before slipping in Aubameyang, who is tackled by Hinteregger just as pulls the trigger. Arsenal have to settle with a corner.
SIlva's disappointment grows as he shoots over shortly after.
Silva is adamant he should have a penalty after his cross maybe brushed the arm of a sliding Kolasinac, but the referee is uninterested.
What a miss! Dost is unmarked, eight yards out, but heads wide. He was stretching, but he just got his radar all wrong and sent the ball well wide.
We're back underway. No changes for either team.
HT: Frankfurt 0-1 Arsenal. The Gunners weathered a storm and now lead thanks so Willock's deflected effort. There have been chances aplenty for both teams though, so Arsenal may have to score again if they are to leave with all three points.
One added minute.
Kohr nicely disguises a pass for Silva, who is close to goal but at an angle, and his snapshot is beaten away by Martinez. Probably his best save yet.
The hosts win a corner but Arsenal defend it well this time.
Luiz heads wide from a corner as Arsenal search for a second. You feel they probably need one.
It was a goal where the assist, while not the most spectacular, stood out above the deflected strike.
- GoalJoe WillockArsenal
GOAL! Frankfurt 0-1 Arsenal (Willock). It certainly won't stay goalless! Saka and Willock link up, with the latter carrying the ball into the box and then unleashing a shot that deflects up and over Trapp but into the net.
Dost heads narrowly wide from a corner. It's hard to see this staying goalless.
Saka's cross almost finds Aubameyang, but Kohr makes a vital interception.
Xhaka wins the ball back deep in the Frankfurt half and slides in Smith Rowe, who is one-on-one with Trapp but the goalkeeper saves with his legs. That's a big chance gone, but at least Arsenal have now had a shot on target.
Silva stays down after knocking knees with Torreira, but it looks like he'll be okay.
As Arsenal look to break, Aubameyang holds the ball up really well on the left before finding enough space to tee up Willock, but he shoots wide from close range.
Da Costa wins his team's fourth corner, from which Hinteregger sees his shot blocked.
Kamada gets on the end of a nice Frankfurt move but can't test Martinez, shooting straight at him.
Kostic steps across Chambers, takes down a long ball excellently and bursts into the box. The angle is tight but he still produces a smart save from Martinez.
This time it's Arsenal turn to shoot wide, with Aubameyang the source.
Kostic sends in a low cross and there's panic in the Arsenal box until Dost slices an effort off target.
Silva looks to have an opening soon after, but his effort is blocked. Frankfurt looking dangerous all of a sudden.
Kostic plays a one-two with Silva and gets in behind Chambers, but then takes a couple of average touches, forcing himself wide, before shooting into the side-netting.
Torreira is trying to run it off.
Saka looks to slip Torreira in but the goalkeeper just beats him to it. Torreira hurdles Trapp but then lands awkwardly and this is a worry for Arsenal.
Not a bad view.
- Yellow cardMartin HintereggerEintracht Frankfurt
Hinteregger pulls back Smith Rowe as Arsenal look to break and that will earn him the game's first card.
Silva flashes a shot wide from range.
Frankfurt looking to attack down their left a lot in the early going, but are yet to create anything of note.
Big chance wasted! Saka's cross from the left picks out an unmarked Torreira, no more than 10 yards from goal, but he can't get over the ball and as a result skies his shot.
Martinez is called into action as a loose ball falls to Sow, 25 yards out, and he goes for goal, but it's a routine save.
Arsenal get the game underway, with boos quickly greeting their every touch.
A big night for him - a first appearance of the season.
The players are in the tunnel and it sounds like it will be a loud one tonight. All in black, Eintracht are certainly dressed to intimidate. Arsenal are in their traditional red and white.
There are just 10 minutes until kick-off, so here's a reminder of the how the teams are lining up. With young wingers ahead of them, it could be a testing night for the Gunners' full-backs.
Aubameyang in unquestionably Arsenal's main man at the moment, and he returns to Germany in fine form. He has five goals in five games this season, as well as four in his last three matches in this competition.
Not just that, Arsenal have lost their last four away games against European opposition, with the aggregate score 13-2 to the home teams.
A tough place to visit.
The disappointing draw at Watford did nothing to dispel the image of Arsenal being a soft touch and poor on the road, yet their last two away games in this competition were actually two impressive wins over Valencia and Napoli.
The is the first competitive meeting between the two clubs.
As for the Gunners, just four players who started at Watford also start here; David Luiz, Saed Kolasinac, Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Emery's flurry of changes included Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe lining up on the flanks. Nicolas Pepe and Dani Ceballos are the main option sin the bench in case of an emergency.
ARSENAL: Martinez, Chambers, Luiz, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Torreira, Willock, Smith Rowe, Saka, Aubameyang.
The hosts lost 2-1 to Augsburg on Saturday and make three changes. Bas Dost, Filip Kostic and Dominik Kohr are the men who come into the side, meaning Dost and Andre Silva will be the primary men targeting what has been a shaky Arsenal defence of late.
FRANKFURT: Trapp, Hasebe, Abraham, Hinteregger, Da Costa, Sow, Kamada, Kohr, Kostic, Dost, Silva.
