The second leg of the Arsenal vs Fenerbahce match will take place this Tuesday, August 27, 2013 (11:45 AM Pacific) at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners are almost through in the qualifying phase of the Champions League 2013-2014 after defeating the Turkish team, 3-0 in the first leg. With a win, a tie, or a loss of less than 3 goals, Arsenal will secure their 16th Champions League appearance.
In the first leg of this series, the team coached by Arsene Wenger played an almost perfect game in Turkey where goals by Kieran Gibbs, Olivier Giroud, and Aaron Ramsey led them to a 3-0 win. With that win, Arsenal almost confirmed their pass into the Group Stages of the Champions League in which they will attempt to go deep into the tournament.
Fenerbahce goes into London hoping to create an almost impossible mission. At home the team coached by Ersun Yanal was unable to score even a goal, therefore scoring 3, while receiving none at the opponent’s field will be a long-shot. The Turkish team has to play offensively from the first minute, which to their misfortune could open gaps on defense which Arsenal’s counter-attack could take advantage of.
Arsenal vs Fenerbahce Prediction
The Arsenal vs Fenerbahce will be a good match, but also one without much nerves. The English team has a nice 3-0 lead that will allow them to play comfortably, considering the opponent has to win by a large margin of goals. Fenerbahce will play an extremely offensive game, but that will not be enough to eliminate the home side. The Arsenal vs Fenerbahce second leg match will end in a 2-1 win for the Gunners.
