Arsenal will face one their five ‘bogey’ teams in the Europa League quarter-final 

Arsene Wenger will be daunted by the Gunners latest European challenge

Arsenal’s wild dreams of winning the Europa League continue on, after their stunning and (quite frankly) surprisingly win over Milan in the last-16. 

The Gunners bested their Italian opponents 5-1 on aggregate after their win at the Emirates on Thursday, thanks largely to the subtle theatrics of Danny Welbeck.


Still, they all count and the Gunners march on to the quarter-finals of the competition, where they’ll face Russian giants CSKA Moscow.

Arsene Wenger will certainly feel confident after the win over Milan, but Moscow is team he’s struggled against in the past.

In fact, CSKA are one of just five teams that Wenger has faced more than once but failed to beat during his time with the Gunners.

Arsenal previously played CSKA in the Champions League group stage during the 2006/2007 season, losing their game at Moscow 1-0 before playing out a 0-0 draw at home.

Despite that, they still managed to top their group and reach the last-16, where they were eventually knocked out by PSV Eindhoven.

Moscow look like somewhat dark horses in the competition this season, having got the better of French giants Lyon in the last-16.

Ahmed Musa (remember him, Leicester fans?) was one of the names on the score-sheet as they won 3-2 in France.

Keep a careful eye on this one, Arsenal fans.
