Alexis Sanchez looked in good spirits as Arsenal jetted off to Croatia ahead of their clash with Dinamo Zagreb
Alexis Sanchez looked in good spirits as he boarded the Arsenal plane on Tuesday as Arsene Wenger’s men prepared for their Champions League opener against Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday night.
The Chile international was snapped in fits of laughter as he climbed the steps before the Gunners squad headed out to Croatia on Tuesday afternoon.
Sanchez posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Feliz 😂✈️⚽️ vamos Gunners mañana 💪🏽 happy today 😂✈️⚽️ let’s go Gunners tomorrow .. Champions league ✌🏼”
Arsenal head into the game on the back of their 2-0 win over Stoke City in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon. That victory moved them up to third place in the Premier League table.
This is Arsenal’s 18th successive group-stage campaign. Last season they reached the round of 16 for the 15th time in a row but again departed at that stage – as in the previous four campaigns.
Dinamo were beaten 5-1 on aggregate by Arsenal in the 2006-07 third qualifying round, losing 3-0 at home and 2-1 away.
