Danny Fiszman and Arsene Wenger both have differing views on Arsenal’s Champions League draw after the Gunners were drawn with Italian giants AS Roma earlier this morning.
French tactician Wenger revealed this afternoon that the draw is a ’50-50′ for the north London side, but club director Fiszman gave an alternative view whilst speaking to the media today.
“I think it is a good draw for us. We have stayed away from the favourite of the moment (Barca) and we have also stayed away from Panathinaikos, which meant a long trip.
“We have a good record against Roma, we are pleased with the draw.
“I think it is the old cliche, there isn’t an easy game, but it is an exciting draw, exciting for the fans.
“Our fans will have the chance to go to Rome and hopefully we will do it twice.
Luciano Spalletti’s technically astute team go into the knockout stages in great form after winning their final three matches in this season’s competition.
Roma will look to Francesco Totti and in-form midfielder Matteo Brighi to lead them to the final in their own stadium.
First leg ties are scheduled to be played on 24/25 February, while the return legs will be played on 10/11 March.
