But, the Gunners made hard work of the tie with a 2-1 loss at the Emirates on Thursday night after returning from Sweden with a 3-0 advantage.

Arsene Wenger should be pleased with the opponents after saying on Friday morning he hoped Arsenal would avoid a big-match pairing with Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.

He said: ‘It looks like the level is high. You have some Russian teams, French teams, German teams. It looks like the competition will become tougher and tougher. So let’s hope we have a good draw.’
