The match is in itself has several talking points as the Turkish club comes into the game after being banned from European football by the UEFA for match fixing scandals. However, Fenerbache got into the qualifying game as UEFA have temporarily allowed them to play. It is still not clear as to what will happen if the Turks win the game and still got banned as they await the final hearing from the court.
Gunner on the other hand are already in a state of bother with things happening inside the North London club. The board and Arsene Wenger who are subject to severe pressure from the fans for their lack of activity in the transfer market certainly went a nod higher as they lost out to Aston Villa in the opening day of the league campaign last Saturday. Tonight’s match is not only a crucial factor in terms of Champions league Qualification, but also in terms of bringing in quality players.
