Arsenal have been drawn against Ostersund in the first knock-out round of the Europa League.
The two sides have never met before, which is not surprising given that the Swedish outfit were not founded until October 31st, 1996. Arsene Wenger was officially appointed Arsenal manager in the same month, so his tenure with us is longer than their entire existence.
They’re managed by an Englishman, Graham Potter, who took over in 2011 and has taken them from the fourth tier of Swedish football to the top flight.
It’s set up to be a very interesting tie.
The first legs will be played on 15 February, and the second legs will be played on 22 February 2018.
As one of the seeded teams, Arsenal will play away from home first, with return leg at the Emirates Stadium.
