Arsenal have drawn italian side Udinese in the champions league play offs. Gunners will be Samir Nasri and Van Persie for the first leg for suspension. Arsene Wenger will also face touch line ban for 1 match. Fabregas is unlikely to play because if he is willing to play with Arsenal in the play offs, he can’t play with Barcelona in the champions league if he joined them, Wilshere is also doubtable as well as Walcott.
The games are to be played on 16&23 August. The first leg will be played at the Emirates in London.
The two legs are to be played between tough premier league sides, which are: Newcastle, Liverpool and Manchester United.
Antonio Di Natale will be the biggest threat to the gunners, as Udinese have sold theyre star player Alexis Sanchez to Barcelona
Arsenal finished at 4th place last season, so they couldnt secure a champions league spot.
