    Arsenal will play their second match in Australia against the Western Sydney Wanderers at Alliance Stadium on Saturday, 15th of July.

    The match is scheduled to kickoff at 8:00pm (AEST).

    After getting the better of Sydney FC to the tune of 2-0, the powerhouse club will look to continue their build-up to the English Premier League with a win against the Wanderers before leaving for a tour of China.

    This is the first time in 40 years that Arsenal has travelled to Australia. It is especially significant due to the calibre of players that have been included in the touring squad. High profile players include Mesut Ozil, Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny.

    Newcomer Alexandre Lacazette was also named in the 25-man squad after his club-record £46.5million ($A79 million) transfer from Olympique Lyonnais, and will be looking for another strong performance after scoring his first goal for the Gunners against the Sky Blues on Thursday night.

    The Western Sydney Wanderers finished sixth in the 2016-17 A-League season, a far cry away from their 2015-16 efforts, when they were runners-up, going down in the grand final.
