The UEFA Champions League is the pinnacle of European Football. Every season the best clubs from across Europe’s major leagues go head-to-head in heavyweight clashes that showcase the elite talent around the continent and create unforgettable atmospheres.
Arsenal bring a lot of optimism with them into this year’s Champions League campaign. Under Mikel Arteta the Gunners recorded an impressive second place finish in the Premier League last season to book their place in the draw for the group stage for the first time since 2016.
The team from North London are yet to win Europe’s top-tier competition, falling narrowly short to Barcelona in 2006. Despite that lack of success, the team’s upwards trajectory is obvious to see and a busy summer window in which they broke their transfer record to sign England’s Declan Rice has only strengthened them for the current campaign.
With an impressive squad, high quality manager and the raucous support of their home support at The Emirates, Arsenal will definitely fancy their chances to go toe to toe with Europe’s elite sides in this year’s competition.
Their opponents RC Lens flew high last season in Ligue 1. The French side impressed when finishing second behind PSG in the table to seal their place in this year’s competition and will be hopeful of making it out of their group.
