first_imgAdvertisement Comment Arsenal beat Vitoria Guimaraes two weeks ago at the Emirates (Picture: Getty Images)Arsenal are back in European action on a Wednesday night this week, but they have not made a magical return to the Champions League, it is simply down to Portuguese traffic.The Gunners travel to take on Vitoria Guimaraes in the Europa League, but with the unusual kick-off time of 3.50pm on Wednesday, rather than Thursday evening.Guimaraes is near Braga, in northern Portugal, and they are also playing at home in the Europa League this week, so Guimaraes’ fixture was moved for safety reasons and to reduce traffic.The two stadiums are less than half-an-hour apart, so it is understandable, and Braga vs Besiktas will remain on Thursday at 8pm.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTMore: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityThe afternoon kick-off is due to the fact that Europa League fixtures cannot clash with Champions League contests, and there is a full set of those on Wednesday.This means that there is no problem with televising the fixture, though, with Guimaraes vs Arsenal being shown on BT Sport 2, with coverage starting at 3.30pm.The reverse fixture was a memorable contest as they came from behind to pinch a 3-2 win, thanks to two fantastic Nicolas Pepe free-kicks.Arsenal would usually return to Premier League action on the Sunday after a Thursday fixture, but are instead travelling to take on Leicester City at 5.30pm on Saturday.MORE: Chris Wilder better option than Jose Mourinho or Max Allegri for Man Utd or Arsenal, says Tony CascarinoMORE: Unai Emery slammed for starting Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil against Wolves Advertisementcenter_img Why is Vitoria Guimaraes vs Arsenal in the Europa League on Wednesday at 3.50pm?
