We’re in Athens, but it’s still a home game – so of course there’s a matchday programme!
Arguably our biggest game of the season, Mikel Arteta knows what’s at stake tonight and discusses how we can prevail in his exclusive notes. As does captain Pierre Emerick Aubamayang in his column – and explains how he once turned a poor first-leg performance against Benfica for Borussia Dortmund into a hat-trick in the return match.
Our Portuguese defender Cedric Soares has been in good form of late and discusses his recent contributions for the Gunners as well as an insight into the opposition – though he’s definitely Sporting Lisbon through and through!
Gabriel is our Forward Arsenal star and tells us about his dream of one day pulling on the famous yellow shirt and winning a full international cap for Brazil.
Our academy section features Joel Lopez as our Young Gun, who tells about life at two great academies – ours and Barcelona’s La Masia. Elsewhere, we take a look at all of our games against Portuguese opposition and focus on four of our matches against Benfica – let’s try and forget that second leg in 1991 shall we?! And check out the picture special section, all about famous hat-tricks following Auba’s treble against Leeds.
