Champions League Draw: Arsenal Handed ‘Group Of Death’

By on August 29, 2013

The draw for the group stages of this years Champions League was drawn this afternoon and we’ve been handed a ‘group of death’.

We were first out the hat and drawn in group F and were soon joined by Marseille, with the French outfit arguably the easiest of all the pot 2 teams we could have drawn. Great start.

However, things quickly went downhill as we were drawn against last years finalists Borussia Dortmund from pot three and Napoli from pot4 – who were the two hardest teams we could have got.

Group F:

Arsenal, Marseille, Borussia Dortmund, Napoli

So it’s going to be a tough ask to get out of this group, that’s for sure. There were teams in pot 4 who have got easier draws!

But this is the hand we’ve been dealt. Marseille will surely be the ‘whipping boys’ and it says a lot considering they were in pot 2.

What do you make of the draw? Will we make it out?
