Arsenal draw Barcelona, Man United get Bayern Munich…
Wenger – miffed?
And so it’s happened. It was another glitzy affair, definitely up there with some of the most spectacularly entertaining Champions League draws of the last few years, including overblown montages, and an awkward conversation between Gianni Infantino and Emilio Butragueno – who, by the way, sounds rather like Christopher Walken when he speaks.
This is how it panned out (well done to 25 per cent of Spoiler readers who correctly called the Arsenal draw!):
Lyon v Bordeaux
Bayern Munich v Man United
Arsenal v Barcelona
Inter v CSKA Moscow
Bayern or Man United v Lyon or Bordeaux
Inter or CSKA Moscow v Arsenal or Barcelona
Not bad for Man United. Not great for Arsenal.
