Your Reaction: Arsenal to face Celtic in qualifier
Arsenal have drawn British neighbors Celtic FC for their ‘do or die’ Champions League qualifier later this month.
The news of the draw which took place in Nyon on Friday, may not come as a surprise after the media heated up the possibility of this particular match-up way ahead.
What is perhaps the glamor fixture of this final round of Champions League qualifiers will take place on August 18 (away) and 26 (home). That also means Arsenal will face Celtic in an official European fixture for the first time ever.
The Gunners do have the know-how of dismantling sides in this phase of the competition after convincing aggregate wins over some of Europe’s up and coming sides, but the Celts may be a different animal to oust.
Wenger’s men also have an idea or two about how to outclass Scottish opposition after doing so recently in a 3-0 win over Rangers in the Emirates Cup.
So how do you feel about Arsenal’s chances of progressing after learning their fate?
