Monaco it is: Wenger handed dream draw

The draw for the UCL was out and Arsenal were paired with French side Monaco. Before the draw Wenger had joked about seeking religious intervention to get a favorable draw. His prayers seem to have been answered as the football deities offered him a reprieve.

Arsene Wenger will be delighted to have drawn Monaco. Probably the fairest draw he could get. Additionally, Le Professor will have a reunion with a club he spent seven years in charge.

Arsenal cycle of dreadful draws seems to have come to an end this season. Even though Arsenal has not met Monaco in a competitive match, Wenger will relish the encounter.

Arsenal has now the opportunity to progress to the quarter finals after being handed what seem as a kind draw. The team and the manager cannot be afforded with excuses this time. They should/must beat Monaco (no pressure).
