Arsenal draw Roma in Champions League
Here’s the full draw:
Arsenal v Roma
Chelsea v Juventus
Villarreal v Panathinaikos
Sporting Lisbon v Bayern Munich
Atletico Madrid v FC Porto
Lyon v Barcelona
Real Madrid v Liverpool
Inter Milan v Manchester United
Arsenal Director Danny Fiszman spoke about the draw, saying:
“I think it is a good draw for us. We have stayed away from the favourite of the moment (Barcelona) and we have also stayed away from Panathinaikos, which meant a long trip.
We have a good record against Roma, we are pleased with the draw. I think it is the old cliche, there isn’t an easy game, but it is an exciting draw, exciting for the fans. Our fans will have the chance to go to Rome and hopefully we will do it twice.”
It’s not a bad draw for Arsenal, it could have been better and could have been worse!
Arsenal will play the first leg at home and travel to Rome for the second leg.
The matches will be played on 24/25 February and 10/11 March.
