Adrian Chiles introduces live coverage of the UEFA Champions League play-off round second-leg tie between Arsenal and Fenerbahce.
 
A place in the group stage is at stake for the Gunners as they face their Turkish opponents at the Emirates a week after the first leg in Istanbul.
 
Former Arsenal favourites Lee Dixon and Ian Wright join Adrian and Gareth Southgate in the studio as Arsene Wenger’s side bid to reach the group stage for the 16th successive season.
 
Fenerbahce were handed a two-year ban from European football in June following allegations of match-fixing but they were later reinstated pending an appeal. 
 
Familiar faces in their squad include former Chelsea player Raul Meireles, Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt and ex-Everton stalwart Joseph Yobo, while the Gunners might be hoping to show off some new signings after a summer of speculation linking them with high-profile players.
 
Commentary comes from Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend.
