Can Arsenal win the Champions League

A few days ago, if you had asked someone whether Arsenal were capable of winning the champions league, then they would surely have doubted it. After Eduardo’s injury and draws against Birmingham and Aston Villa, few people would have thought that Arsenal can win against Milan at San Siro considering that no English team have beaten them at San Siro. But history was made when Arsenal beat Milan at San Siro and the main point was that they virtually outclassed them at there own turf. Now the pundits are saying that they have an excellent chance of reaching the finals for the second time in three seasons.

Milan started the game well and were playing like champions for the first few minutes after they were outclassed by a youth and pace of the Arsenal side. Even though Arsenal scored the goal very late in the game, it was no clear indication of the way that the game had proceeded. Even though Milan had Kaka with them, he was virtually overshadowed by the performance of Fabregas and Adebayor, two young stars of the Arsenal team. The best thing that can be said about this performance was that it was away from home. For progressing in the Champions league, away form is of utmost importance and if you can defeat AC Milan at home, you can compete against almost any team. Last year, Manchester United were outclassed by Milan at San Siro and if Arsenal can beat them at there own turf, they are sure a team that has the right to be thought of as a future Champion.

Now any team would like to avoid them in the draw for the next round but the best thing i like about champions league is that it is so unpredictable. Anything can happen, so lets just wait for the draw.
