The 5 Possible Opponents For Arsenal In The Last 16 Draw

By on December 11, 2013

Arsenal typically made it a nervy night after crashing to a 2-0 defeat to Napoli in the Champions League tonight.

Thankfully the Italians left it too late to really make a push for another goal that would have seen us finish third, but with Borussia Dortmund scoring a late winner over 10-man Marseille, the loss in Naples means we finish second in Group F.

In past seasons finishing second has seen us paired with the likes of Bayern Munich and Barcelona in the last 16, so will this season be any different? Unfortunately not.

Here are the five group winners we can draw in the next round:

  • Barcelona
  • Real Madrid
  • Atletico Madrid
  • Paris Saint German
  • Bayern Munich

Soooooo, which of that lot do we want to draw then?! Let’s face it, ideally we wouldn’t want any of them but this is the position we find ourselves in.

It all stems from being ridiculously unlucky with the group we got and we should actually be pleased to just make it out of the group stages. Napoli didn’t qualify with 12 points for the first time in Champions League history, so it shows how well we’ve done to qualify.

On paper, Atletico or PSG would be the best teams to draw, but you just know we’re probably going to get Barcelona again!

Whoever it is, we’ll find out on Monday when the draw is made. Who would like to get? Let us know below….

    We are going to draw Real Madrid. The return of Mesut Ozil. Almost certain of that! 😉

    IF WE HAVE THE AMBITION TO WIN THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE, WE SHOULD BE PREPARED TO FACE ANY TEAM. MY WORRY IS HOWEVER WENGER’S TACTICS WHEN WE FACE STRONG OPPONENTS. HE GOES DEFENSIVE WITHOUT ALLOWING ARSENAL TO ATTACK. THAT MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO CREATE GOAL SCORING CHANCES. OUR MATCH WITH MAN U AND RECENTLY NAPOLI ARE GOOD EXAMPLES. I HOPE HE DOESN’T DO THAT AGAINST MAN CITY. LET US BE PREPARED TO FACE ANY TEAM AND EVOLVE THE RIGHT APPROACH.
