They only just made it here.
Arsenal nearly pulled off the biggest meltdown in European football history last night but fortunately for them they made it through to the last 16.
Ostersunds gave everyone at the Emirates a huge shock as the Swedish team with a British manager in Graham Potter took a two-goal lead last night.
The Gunners ended up losing at home but managed to progress thanks to Sead Kolasinac’s goal just after half time.
But with a number of brilliant teams securing passage to the Europa League last 16, Arsene Wenger knew his team could be in trouble come the draw.
Lucky to avoid Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid, Eric Abidal drew AC Milan as Arsenal’s opponents for the next round.
The ties will be played on March 8 and 15 with Arsenal visiting the San Siro first before the game at the Emirates.
After their deeply uninspiring display all the teams will feel they have a chance of getting past Arsenal over two legs if they show a similar complacency or lax attitude.
With the Gunners currently sixth in the table, eight points behind Chelsea in fourth, Wenger knows the Europa League is probably his sides’ best chance of making the Champions League next season.
This is the full draw for the Europa League last 16:
Lazio v Dynamo Kyiv
RB Leipzig v Zenit
Atletico Madrid v Lokomotiv Moscow
CSKA Moscow v Lyon
Marseille v Athletic Bilbao
Sporting v Viktoria Plzen
Borussia Dortmund v Salzburg
AC Milan v Arsenal
