Arsenal vs. FC Basel 2016 live stream: Time, TV schedule, and how to watch Champions League online

Arsenal will look to kick-start their Champions League campaign at home to Basel on Wednesday.

Arsenal will look to carry their recent good form into their Champions League encounter with Swiss champions Basel at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday. Arsène Wenger's side haven't lost since they suffered defeat at home to Liverpool in their first game of the season, and convincingly thrashed London rivals Chelsea 3-0 over the weekend. The Gunners are sure to be confident of taking all three points here after being held to a draw by PSG in their European opener.

Basel's domestic record so far this season has been even more impressive: Urs Fischer's side have won all of their nine matches in Switzerland, and have romped seven points clear of Young Boys at the top of the table. Unfortunately they weren't quite as prolific in their Champions League opener against Ludogorets, which they drew 1-1, but they may well fancy their chances of causing an upset away at Arsenal.

The Gunners will be without several first-team regulars, including Aaron Ramsey, Danny Welbeck, Per Mertesacker, and Francis Coquelin. Basel, meanwhile, will be without Manuel Akanji and Kevin Bua, though should otherwise have a full-strength team available.
