Arsenal Face Tricky 3rd Round Tie

Arsenal haven't had the easiest draw in the world after being paired with either FK Ekranas or Dinamo Zagreb in the draw for the 3rd qualifying round of the Champions League.

Dinamo Zagreb, who are favorites to beat FK Ekranas, enter the competition as Champions of Croatia.

Arsenal will play the first leg on August 8 or 9 and the second leg on August 22 or 23.

Anyone know what the score was from the first leg? This makes booking flights a real pain!

yes its 4-1 to zagreb and the croatian side will easily progress. I think we are away first of all but dont know which day that is yet. as croatian champions with the odd brazilian in their side they could be dangerous opposition.

I am still confident that we can get past them and go through to the main draw.

Without henry & with almunia in goal I think there is a massive chance that we will crash out & end up in the uefa cup instead.

Should be an interesting tie. Not really the team i'd've chosen to play but we could've got worse. I'd rather we got Haifa instead of 'Pool. But it doesn't matter coz all us Gooners know that in the next 11 days we're gonna sign 5 new world calss players haha. I'm still laughing at Spurts' new kit tho hahahaha

Right b######s to it, I'm gonna bite the bullet and book a flight to Zagreb today. I think this one could be tricky, but I'm hoping Boro Primorac will have the inside track. Dein's also confirmed "civil discussions" with Chelski over Cole. I'd like to think that these "discussions" involve Dein bursting into the negotiations with a smith and weston to Cole's head, shouting "Give us Gallas in exchange or the c##t gets it."

i agree with rudeboy i think we have enough quality without henry. this is van persies year and almunia is not all that terrible. plus by the time they come to new highbury on the 22nd we will have a stronger match fit squad so zagreb are the ones who should be fretting
