If there was a match Arsenal could afford to lose this season, it was today’s.
The slender defeat at Olympiacos was harsh on a spirited performance from an Arsenal side which set the record for the youngest line-up ever fielded in the competition.
Arsenal’s only loss was their unbeaten record in the Champions League this season but they head into the next stage of the tournament with much dignity after topping their group for the first time in three years.
Into the knock-out round, Wenger will be aware – as always – that top spot in Group H may not necessarily guarantee a fair task in the round of 16.
There are still big names in the bag and some mouth-watering clashes at the offing.
So here is a list of those left in the category of opponents Arsenal can be drawn against in the next round.
(Teams from the same country, group or with identical finishing positions in group stage cannot be drawn against each other)
The Gunners have faced all seven teams before in history and remember, the official Champions League draw will take place next week Friday in Nyon.
So which of the above teams would you prefer Arsenal to come up against?
