Sporting Lisbon falls to Arsenal

After eliminating FC Midtjylland in the play-off round, the Lions snatched away the big Europa League shark in the Round of 16: Arsenal.

It cannot be said that Sporting Lisbon was very lucky in this draw. He will face the Portuguese in the round of 16, one of the favorites to win the European title. The Gunners are having an impressive season, and are currently leading the Premier League. The Londoners were able to afford themselves the luxury of going straight into the round of 16 thanks to their first place in the group stage ahead of PSV Eindhoven, FK Bodo/Glimt and FC Zurich.

The first leg will be held on March 9 at Jose Alvalade Stadium, then revenge on March 16 at Emirates Stadium.
