Arsenal fans were not best pleased to be the joke during the Champions League draw yesterday, so when their turn came around in the Europa League, people were still there to troll them.
As it was, Arsenal drew teams that people had heard of – but that should not be anything to bother them in terms of quality. The travelling and playing on a Thursday night is far from ideal, but that being said, Manchester United made the best of it last season and ended up winning the competition and getting back into the Champions League.
People were obviously ready to make a joke about the fact that at least they couldn’t draw Bayern Munich – although the scenes if the Germans managed to come third in their group and draw Arsenal in the knockout stages of the Europa League would be special indeed.
As it was, Arsenal were drawn in Europa League Group H and are set to face BATE Borisov, FC Köln and Red Star Belgrade – in a draw that the Gunners will be fairly pleased with.

Finding it a bit funny how some Arsenal fans are acting like this Europa draw is beneath them. They’ve been a waste of a UCL space for years

The way that Arsenal Twitter has mocked United for being in Europa, it’s beautiful to see their draw against teams they haven’t heard of.

I bet you Bayern will finish 3rd in their group behind PSG and Celtic and will draw Arsenal in the EL round of 32. It’s just Arsenal’s luck.
