Surprise Group A leaders Bodo/Glimt have never faced an English team in a competitive fixture before, and Kjetil Knutsen will be relishing the occasion as they take on Arsenal at the Emirates today. Mikel Arteta's men are in excellent form but the Norwegian champions tend to save their best for the big European nights, and you can read on to find out how to watch an Arsenal vs Bodo/Glimt live stream and catch the Europa League online, no matter where you are in the world.

As expected, Mikel Arteta has made sweeping changes to the team that beat Tottenham at the weekend, with Gabriel Magalhães, Granit Xhaka and Gabriel Martinelli the only men to retain their places. Eddie Nketiah and Marquinhos form a front three with Martinelli, while summer arrival Matt Turner starts in goal.

The first thing to note about Bodo/Glimt is that they've made it to the stadium. Their team bus broke down en route to the Emirates, forcing a switch to a fleet of minibuses, though the coaching staff decided to hit the streets instead. Knutsen has named an attacking-minded 4-3-3, with star man Amahl Pellegrino partnering Runar Espejord and Joel Mugisha up front.

To many observers they're so obscure that even their name causes confusion, but Bodo/Glimt have quickly built up a reputation as giant-killers. They beat Roma twice in European competition last season, including a 6-1 pasting, and they also did the double over Celtic.

Pellegrino is by some distance the top scorer in Eliteserien, and though he's yet to register in the Europa League so far this term, his teammates have been more than happy to chip in. Arsenal, meanwhile, are leading the way in the Premier League and coursing with confidence after a resounding 3-1 win against their fiercest rivals at the weekend. 

However, tonight's game is a potential banana skin for the Gunners, so follow our guide to get an Arsenal vs Bodo/Glimt live stream and watch the Europa League online from anywhere.

How to watch Arsenal vs Bodo/Glimt from outside your country

We've set out how you can live stream Arsenal vs Bodo/Glimt in a number of countries around the world.

This is the result of geo-blocking - best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to specific parts of the world.
