PICTURE: Gunners handed tough draw in UEFA rehearsal draw

Arsenal will hope for better luck tomorrow when the actual draw for the UEFA Champions League round of 16 takes place after receiving a stern result in today’s rehearsal.

UEFA members held a practice event to prepare everything ahead of the big draw on Thursday in Nyon and even that rehearsal brought up some scintillating clashes. The Gunners were paired with Bayern Munich while Manchester United met Real Madrid.

Here were the results of UEFA’s rehearsal draw of the first knock-out round. (Again, this was just a rehearsal and NOT the final draw which takes place tomorrow)

  1. ARSENAL IS READY TO FACE ANY CLUB AND IS DETERMIND TO PROVE CRITIS WRONG .BELIEVE ME OR NOT A REPEAT OF 2OO6 IS ON THE CARDS.

    • Its best to reply the earliest comment SIMPLEX you appear to have viewed & commented this article 19 Dec 2012 at 1;10 PM. The BBC website reported the draw at noonish on 20th Dec 2012 live.

  2. This rehearsal should come to pass in Jesus name. Amen ten times. The team I watched against Reading can beat Bayern. I’m alright by that.

  3. In my opinion it wouldn’t be that bad for us to get a tough draw, if we overcome a team like Munich it could give us confidence for the rest of the season and compition, and if we lose we just concede that they are the better team, also its one tougher opponent out of the next round =)

  4. Arsenal is not fear to face any team bcos we are capable and conpetent to face any callenge that comes across our way.

  5. ARSENAL MUST HAVE WINING MENTALITY INOTHER TO SUCCEED ANY CLUB… LET THE DRAWS COME AND LET THE GAMES BEGING.

    • Arsenal re biger team who can surprice people at any time..i see arsenal trashing baryer munich out of thise championship group.

  6. Nothing is impossible in football it might turned to be a blessing in disguise for Arsenal. Better luck.

    • C’mon have some faith. we play swansea at least 2 more times maybe 3 more times this season do you honestly think they will continue to “MIchu” us all the way??

  7. Hold on, the actual draw has just been held and the result is exactly the same. How much of a coincidence is that!!!!!

  8. SO tell me something… If you posted this yesterday, how come the actual draw has today has yeilded the SAME results.. something fishy going on here.

  9. F…..ng S…….ttttt everybody seem to notice this. If the rehearsal is same as the actual draw then we’ve all been played. Seriously who did’nt suspect this all along. Football is the new wrestling .. ha ha and I thought some teams were that good.

  11. How is it that this rehearsal was reported 24 hrs before the real draw and ended up with an identical outcome? The odds on that with 16 teams in are astronomical – in fact, they are even bigger than that, because it isn’t just that the same teams were paired together, but each pair came out in exactly the same order. This is not random chance: it has to be some kind of fix.

    • I want to know that as well. This is bizarre. I clicked on this yesterday and didn’t really pay much attention to it then. Just got home from work and the draw was exactly right. What??

What do you think?
