Could it be another bon voyage for Arsenal? They have never lost to French opposition in France in European competitions
But the Gunners have suffered two painful losses in France
Wednesday 18 September 2013
Arsenal will look to get their Champions League campaign off to an impressive start tonight in Marseilles, and the omens look good for Arsene Wenger's side - they have never lost a European match to French opposition away in France.
There has been, however, two very notable, and painful defeats for the Gunners in European competitions in France - the Cup Winners' Cup final in 1995 at the Parc des Princes in Paris, which Arsenal lost 2-1 to Real Zaragoza thanks to Nayim's infamous effort from the halfway line, and the Champions League final in 2006, when 10-man Arsenal could not hold on against Barcelona at the Stade de France, also in Paris, losing 2-1.
