The Europa League draw has been made and Arsenal will come up against Swedish minnows Ostersunds – a side founded after Arsene Wenger took over as Gunners manager.
The Frenchman agreed a deal to take over at Arsenal back in August 1996, though he didn’t start work with them straight away, while Ostersunds were founded at the end of that October.
Wenger will be pleased to avoid big names like Atletico Madrid, Napoli and Borussia Dortmund, while there were some other intriguing ties for the last 32.
The Europa League draw also pitted Celtic against Zenit Saint Petersburg, while Napoli vs RB Leipzig is another one to watch.
