Arsenal fans convinced they're going to get bad Champions League draw

After Paris Saint-Germain impressed in a 2-2 draw at the Emirates Stadium last month, not many people gave Arsenal a chance of winning their Champions League group.

However, the French champions failing to beat Ludogorets at home on Tuesday night coupled with the Gunners' 4-1 victory in Basel means that Arsene Wenger's side finished top of Group A.

Arsenal have been poor in the Round of 16 over the past five or six years, in part due to the fact that they've almost always come up against a European heavyweight, and, despite winning their group, that outcome might not be about to change.

Bayern Munich beat Atletico Madrid yesterday, but it wasn't enough to stop the German giants finishing second. Meanwhile, an inspired comeback at the Bernabeu from Borussia Dortmund prevented defending European champions Real Madrid from topping their group too.

Arsenal fans are worried

Arsenal fans are understandably gutted that some of Europe's biggest clubs have finished as runners-up in their groups on the one occasion that their team managed to win theirs.

Given Arsenal's record in recent times, it comes as no surprise that Gunners supporters are convinced that they will draw Real or Bayern, rather than the talented but less dangerous Benfica, Bayer Leverkusen, Porto or Europa League holders Sevilla

With the draw taking place on Monday, and Arsenal still in with a chance of meeting one of the big boys, check out some of the best reaction from fans below:

Despite their pessimism, you could argue that Arsenal fans should be fairly optimistic given their side's current form and remarkable unbeaten run in the league.

Alexis Sanchez is on fire as the main centre-forward, Mesut Ozil is running the show game after game, while summer signing Lucas Perez announced himself with a hat-trick against Basel. February, however, is a very long away away.
