Arsenal’s season is going to start early as we have to play in the Champions League qualifiers after only finishing 4th last season. From being in a position to win the league to at least finishing second, we through it away and now have to play games to just qualify for the Champions League. Well at least we are in the Champions League unlike Spurs!
These qualifiers are potentially tricky but hopefully we will be okay. I have just had a look at a post on Arsenal.com about who we are likely to play and it is not going to be easy.
As it stands, if all the seeded teams from the Third Qualifying Round advance to the Play-Off Round, Bayern, Arsenal, Lyon, Benfica and Villarreal would be seeded.
In that scenario, Arsenal’s potential Play-Off opponents are Dynamo Kyiv, Udinese, Panathinaikos, Twente or Standard Liege.
