Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger spoke at the press conference about the importance of the Champions League group stage double against French side Olympique Marseille. The Frenchman admitted that Marseille is a tough opponent and that Arsenal could have problems going through the group stage if they don’t manage to pull at least 4 points out of this double.
“The two games against Marseille will decide our qualification,” the Frenchman said. “If we take four points then we will qualify.”
“They have a similar run to us – a disappointing start in the championship and they have done well in the Champions League. It is exactly the same.
