Hard to judge how difficult our draw will be when there's three months until the first knockout round. At the moment, the only team that doesn't seem daunting is Malaga, but if we somehow turn our form around in those three months, I wouldn't fear PSG, Dortmund or Juventus.

We all know we're getting Barcelona, though. Can almost guarantee it.

At this rate we'll definitely go out by every team from that crop bar Malaga. But just in case we somehow turn the season around, hope we don't get Barcelona or Bayern München. There's no chance we'll beat them with whatever form we're in.

Although Chelsea did last year despite finishing below us in the league.

Touché Razz

Still, Barcelona and Bayern both are stronger this season. Best teams by far. I predict them to face each other in the final unless it happens earlier.

As ever with these draws, it's slightly irrelevant to try and predict how hard each game will be at this moment because the ties aren't played until February and March, but ideally Malaga would be our best bet at this stage.

Barcelona are the absolute no-go, must be avoided. Bayern, Dortmund and Juve would be incredibly difficult too. I'm not convinced by PSG at all this season - they sit 4th in Ligue 1 for a reason - and although Lucas Moura and probably more players will arrive in Jan, Ancelotti will only still be in charge if he turns around their form.

But again, come February PSG could be running away with Ligue 1 title and on fire, so hard to say much right now.

Can't wait for the draw as always though.

Its tough to judge this team atm, I think we are underperforming rather than just being bad. I hope that at some point this season cazorla arteta and wilshere hit top form together, then we could have a chance

I'd say PSG too, but who knows Wenger might be managing them by February :I'munoriginal:

no point in discussing this atm.. i dont see us beating any of this teams with our current game..
i would like to avoid Refcelona and Juventus.. we can beat Dortmund or Bayern if we play to our strengths.. so that leaves me happy with either Malaga or PSG who i feel will easily go down against an Arsenal team in decent form...

PSG- Will beat us both games.
Malaga- Will tie and win at home.
Dortmund- Will lose both games
Juventus- Will lose both games
Bayern Munich- Will lose both games badly.
Barcelona- Will lose both games badly.

No mater what form we are in we wont challenge anyone here, Unless we sign 5 top players. eco smile

I don't think PSG will beat you both games honestly, their attacking is quite reckless and they don't create many chances during games. But then there is a chance of facing a motivated Ibra. But i honestly don't think you will lose both games against them

I want Dortmund Twisted Evil

Not because I think we'd have a better chance against them but because it'll be a hell of a match, my second favorite team too.

Any team is going to be a task, too early though, to know how much of a task each will be.

Cesc “I think at this stage of the competition, all teams are difficult, but I would be thrilled, for love and affinity, if I could face Arsenal back in London and face all the people that I have played with for so many years. It would be a very special tie for me," he told reporters.

Why does Cesc hate us? haven't we suffered enouph? Crying or Very sad

Dortmund is my second team.. Thats why i would like to avoid them..
Do you want a more younger and cheaply assembled team with similar style and philosophy to dominate and beat us playing our own game..?
We know we can defeat anyone outplaying them with our own game.. But that is not happening atm with our current squad and attack...

I suprisingly want Dortmund...

We'd be treated to 2 games of great football. But then Wenger needs to turn things around, because the current crap we're playing Dortmund would juz boss us around and feck us up.

But of course ... Praying for Malaga, because I want us to go far, and maybe get a lil bit of luck and do a Chelsea. Smile (the eternal optimist that I am, yep I know) Smile

But of course we also know that come the 20th, we'll be drawn with Barcelona. And then we'd give them a tough game at the Emirates, but when we go to the Nou Camp. Messi will bang in 5 and Song will get the last goal in injury time, juz to rub a lil more salt in our wounds.

Wouldn't mind PSG too, tbh. They're playing some mixed, up-and-down crap atm (performance wise)

And they're 4th in a pretty crappy league, which is Ligue 1, atm.
I think we'd have a chance against them.

But Juve, Munich and Barca are absolutely no-goes...

Why are UEFA waiting until the 20th? I seem to remember they usually do the draw 48 hrs after the last games?

I'm not into this waiting nonsense.

We'll get Barca. We always get Barca.

Good question. Not sure why. But at least it's builds the tension and interest bounce
