emirates cup 2017

Arsenal have announced details of the Emirates Cup which will take place this pre-season.

The games are being held on Saturday July 29th and Sunday July 30th, and joining the Gunners for the weekend are Benfica, Sevilla and RB Leipzig.

The first two have great European pedigree, with the Spanish side three time Europa League winners, while Leipzig currently sit second in the Bundesliga table behind Bayern Munich.

It was reported last year that their manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl, was one of the candidates to take over from Arsene Wenger should he decide to call it quits this summer.

“There was a lot of truth to it,” he said last December.

“I have heard of worse fates than succeeding the longest-serving manager in England. It’s not damaging my reputation, is it?!”

The fixtures for the weekend are as follows.

Saturday July 29th

RB Leipzig v Sevilla – 2pm

Arsenal v Benfica – 4.20pm

Sunday July 30th

RB Leipzig v Benfica – 2pm

Arsenal v Sevilla – 4.20pm
