The 2007/2008 Champions League Draw In Full

Arsenal were drawn in Group H of the Champions League, alongside Sevilla or AEK Athens, Steaua Bucharest and Slavia Praha.

We will meet Slavia Praha, who are the rivals of Sparta Prague who we beat 3-0 last night and 5-0 overall in the qualifying stage. If Sevilla make it past AEK Athens then they will provide tough opposition, especially winning the UEFA Cup in the last two seasons.

  1. I watched the draw and thought it was a bit disrespectful towards AEK Athens when the official kept referring to the Sevilla/Athens as just Sevilla.

    Have they actually played the first leg – does anyone know the score at the moment?

    It’s a fantastic group for us, near the end I thought that Fenerbahce were going to be drawn against us and that would have been a disaster, on and off the pitch!

  2. Fixtures are out for champions league. First game is a home time with Sevilla most likely. Last another home tie, hopefully qualification will be sorted by prague away

  3. Can’t believe Cech won the goalkeeper award. Reina was much better, and at least saved a few penalties in the semi-final!
