Arsene Wenger: We want to avoid Bayern Munich and Real Madrid
The Arsenal boss is hoping to avoid Bayern Munich and Real Madrid in Monday's Champions League draw
Arsene Wenger admits that he is keen for Arsenal to avoid Real Madrid and Bayern Munich in Monday’s Champions League draw.
The Gunners are set to discover their last-16 opponents as the draw takes place at Uefa’s headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland at 11:00 GMT.
Arsenal could face Bayern, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Monaco or Porto.
“We’ve never had an easy ride,” said Wenger.
“I don’t think many teams want Madrid. We don’t want Bayern Munich and I’m sure they don’t want us.”
When asked about the possibility of facing his former club Monaco, Wenger added: “I’m not against it at all because it would be a visit to my first home there. Of course I would love to go there.”
