Arsenal comes into the Europa League Round of 32 with one of its remaining lifelines for European play next year.
Here’s how to stream Arsenal live.
Benfica vs. Arsenal: Preview
Arsenal had a terrific outing against Leeds last weekend. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his first-ever Premier League hat trick en route to a 4-2 win over Leeds. That positions Arsenal to make a possible run at the European places, with Spurs right above it at ninth in the table. Mighty Liverpool is only six points better at this stage of the campaign. But Arsenal needs more consistency to vault those teams.
Benfica would be absent from Portugal’s Champions League places were the season to end today, so it has some more work to do there. Of course, winning the Europa League is also a route into Champions League, though Arsenal—even with this season’s woes—isn’t an easy out.
According to the oddsmakers at BetMGM (as of Feb. 2):
- Arsenal, +105 (wager $100 to win $105)
- Benfica, +250 (wager $100 to win $250)
- Draw, +260
How is Arsenal doing? Update on the 2020-21 season
- Premier League: 9th place (34 points, +6 GD) after 24 matches
- Europa League: Arsenal won all six group matches to take Group B, and will play Benfica in the Round of 32 starting Feb. 18
- FA Cup: Arsenal was knocked out by Southampton in the Fourth Round on Jan. 23.
- League Cup: Arsenal lost to Manchester City 4-1 in the quarterfinals on Dec. 22.
- Community Shield: Arsenal won the preseason match-for-a-plate, beating Liverpool in penalty kicks.
Stream Arsenal live: How to watch Premier League matches online
Here is how to watch the Premier League live and online, be it on NBCSN (where Arsenal plays Tuesday), NBC, or Peacock.
To stream Premier League matches this season, you’ll need Peacock to access every match. There is a free version allowing you to sample various NBC movies, shows, and original content. But for Premier League live streaming, you’ll need to upgrade to Peacock Premium.
It’ll become more and more essential throughout the season given the number of matches NBC’s featuring on the service. That’s where, for instance, you can stream Arsenal vs. Manchester United on Sunday. And, fingers crossed and covid willing, you’ll be able to roll right from the end of the Premier League season to the rescheduled Summer Olympics.
FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans. It’s since evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. It starts at $59.99 a month, and depending on the package, you can access as many as 180+ FuboTV channels. Fubo can entertain you with Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 at even Fubo’s most basic tier.
The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. Fubo added the ESPN suite of channels in an agreement that also brought ABC and the Disney Channel.
Pretty much every sports channel you could think of is available through Fubo, including BeIN Sports, CBS Sports Network, and TUDN. You can also get NBCSN which, this week, gets you a Manchester City live stream. To get the most sports, consider adding the Sports Plus with NFL RedZone add-on at $10.99 a month to a robust Fubo Elite package.
