The result further dims Arsenal’s Champion’s League appearance next season.
This wasn’t the expectations of Arsenal fans who were eager to see their darling club steal the show last night, but reverse was the case.
Would the club side have opportunity of participating in the next season of champion’s league? Their performance last night certainly dims that opportunity and this doesn’t go down well with the fans world over.
Although, the match was played behind close doors, football fans stayed clued to their TV sets last night as they couldn’t afford to be told of the outcome of the long awaited matches that were halted as a result of the global pandemic – COVID-19.
Some fanatic Arsenal fans have made a u-turn from following the remaining matches while others are determined to follow the game to till the end of the season.
In reality, some players on the pitch couldn’t come in terms with the outcome of the match, but that was the reality.
Arsenal may not make it to next season of champion’s league.
