Arsenals Hard Work Has Paid Off In Champions League!

While the rest of the Premier League big guns are facing immense games in the Champions League this week, Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal team will be kicking back and relaxing in their final group game against Olympiakos. Sportsbook guardian betting certainly didn't expect this at the start of the season!

With Arsenal having qualified as the group winners already some gambling guardian offers are tipping them to go far in the competition! Wenger wont admit of course but he will be delighted with the situation and it will give him an opportunity to ring the changes and give some of his younger players some valuable experience.

Wenger loves to expose his youngsters to the big occasions and he will have complete belief in them getting a result. The atmosphere at Olympiakos will be sensational, so what a learning curve it will be if he does play his young players. If they manage to handle that kind of situation, they will be well prepared to manage similar situations in the future!

As good as this opportunity to play a young team will be, I think Wenger will be most pleased at the fact that he can rest some of his regular players and in particular Robin Van Persie!

Full credit to Wenger for taking the Champions League seriously! The likes of United, City and Chelsea could be guilty of taking their eye off the ball! United in particular have played weaker teams in crucial games and they could pay the price for it! Now Wenger will reap the rewards which could really benefit his squads Premiership campaign!

Arsene has already said it will be a catastrophe if Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United fail to qualify for the next phase and he's right! But at the same time it just goes to prove that the group stages of the Champions League isn't as easy as people think, and Arsene Wenger should be credited for once again taking his Arsenal team to the knock-out stages!
