What is Arsenal’s Champions League journey so far?
Across the history of the UEFA Champions League – and its predecessor iteration, the European Cup – Arsenal have been one of the tournament’s great bridesmaids, with the big prize one of the major pieces of silverware on offer to elude them over the years.
With Manchester City’s victory last term, there have now been six clubs from England who have claimed the honour, the Gunners are not among them, mustering their best finish back in 2006 when they finished as runners-up to Barcelona following the heartbreak of a late loss in the final at the Stade de France in Paris.
Since their last appearance in 2016-17, Arsenal have spent most of their time in action in the UEFA Europa League, or out of Europe entirely. But with their place back in the UEFA Champions League secured for another season, they will have their eyes on a deep run through the tournament, and securing qualification once again too.

Who will Arsenal face in the Champions League?
Arsenal will begin their 2023-24 UEFA Champions League campaign with six group-stage matches against opponents yet to be determined. Though the Gunners booked their place automatically for the competition, several other clubs will enter following several qualification rounds, with the draw made on August 31, 2023.
The 2023-24 UEFA Champions League group stage will see 32 teams drawn into eight groups of four, with these sides then playing a round-robin mini-league against each other, home and away. Each group will include a team from one of four pots, where sides are seeded based on their prior performance and qualification method.
Furthermore, teams cannot be drawn against clubs from the same country at this stage, meaning Arsenal will not face City, United or Newcastle. The Gunners will be in Pot 2 for the draw, which means they cannot be also drawn against their fellow sides in Real Madrid, Inter, Borussia Dortmund, Atletico Madrid, RB Leipzig and Porto.
