Dundalk v Arsenal live stream: how to watch the Europa League wherever you are in the world

Watch a Dundalk v Arsenal live stream, as the Gunners look to ease the pressure on Mikel Arteta

Arsenal suffered another defeat in the Premier League at the weekend and will be looking to bounce back against Dundalk on Thursday.

The Gunners lost 2-0 to arch-rivals Tottenham on Sunday as their miserable domestic form continued. Arsenal have now won only one of their last seven games in England’s top flight, and are now closer - in both points and places - to the bottom three than the top four. Only the bottom three have scored fewer goals than Arsenal’s 10, with Mikel Arteta facing fresh questions about his team’s attacking strategy following the loss at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The Europa League has provided Arsenal with some much-needed respite this term, and Arteta will be keen to lift the gloom with a comfortable victory over Dundalk. However, even a club-record thrashing of the Irish side would not paper over the cracks, and it is in the Premier League where this Arsenal team will ultimately be judged. Still, a win on Thursday would see the Gunners finish the group stage with a 100 per cent record. You can get odds of 1/6 on Arsenal to win with Bet 365, where you can get £30 in Free Bets + 60 Free Spins when you bet £10.

Dundalk have lost all five of their games to date, but merely making it this far was a tremendous achievement. They have also scored six goals in the group stage and gave both Molde and Rapid Vienna tough games in October and November. Filippo Giovagnoli will hope his team can end their European adventure on a high with a positive performance against one of the biggest clubs in the competition. BetFred are offering odds of 7/1 on the draw for this clash. 

Arteta will likely ring the changes here ahead of Sunday’s must-win game against Burnley in the Premier League. Nicolas Pepe looks set to start after missing the Spurs game with a suspension that does not apply to the Europa League, while David Luiz could be back in contention following a nasty clash of heads with Wolves striker Raul Jimenez. Fancy a punt on the underdogs? Right now, you could take advantage of Betfair's 18/1 odds on the home side. 

Kick-off is at 17.55pm GMT and the game is being shown on BT Sport 2 in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

SEE THE FULL SCHEDULE Premier League live streams: How to watch every game on this weekend

Use a VPN to watch a Dundalk v Arsenal live stream from outside your country

We know, we know, this has crept up on you a bit. So what if you’ve organised a quick winter break and you’re out of the country for the first Champions League week of the season?

We can help. If you’re out of the country for this round of Champions League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address, and you’ll be blocked from watching.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:

1. ExpressVPN (inc. 30-day, money-back guarantee)

The recommended VPN of choice. FourFourTwo’s brainy pals TechRadar love ExpressVPN's lightning-quick connections, security you can trust, and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 plus plenty more. It also comes with that money-back guarantee, has 24/7 support, is currently available for a 49% discount and with three months FREE. Grand.

2. Nord VPN (inc. 30-day, money-back guarantee)

A cheaper option; its cheapest package current averages at a titchy £2.29 per month.

3. IPVanish (inc. seven-day money-back guarantee)

Slightly more expensive but supports up to 10 devices, and you can pay up your hard-earned every three months if required.
