Arsenal Draw Paris Saint-Germain, Basel, Ludogorets

Arsenal have drawn very well for this season’s installment of Champions League football. Slotted in Group A, Arsenal are joined by Paris Saint-Germain, Basel and Ludogorets.

Paris Saint-Germain

While PSG are a massive club with an equally impressive payroll, Arsenal must be somewhat relieved at avoiding Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. PSG are beatable, and with a healthy squad, there is every opportunity to finish atop the group for the Gunners.


It will be interesting to note that the Xhaka brothers will be opponents for Arsenal’s home leg and trip to Basel to play the Swiss side.


This will be Arsenal’s first time playing the Bulgarian side Ludogorets, which is a 2700-mile roundtrip from North London. It is also about one-eighth the size of The Emirates.


Here are the rest of the results:

Group A: Paris St-Germain, Arsenal, Basel, Ludogorets

Group B: Benfica, Napoli, Dynamo Kyiv, Besiktas

Group C: Barcelona, Manchester City, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Celtic

Group D: Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, PSV Eindhoven, FC Rostov

Group E: CSKA Moscow, Bayer Leverkusen, Tottenham Hotspur, Monaco

Group F: Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Sporting Lisbon, Legia Warsaw

Group G: Leicester, Porto, Club Brugge, FC Copenhagen

Group H: Juventus, Sevilla, Lyon, Dinamo Zagreb
