A rough group drawing has a lot of Arsenal fans nervous after 5 straight years of elimination in the Round of 16.
After drawing Bayern Munich, Olympiacos and Dinamo Zagreb, Arsenal fans aren’t feeling too good about their chances of winning Group F of the group stage.
Taking to Twitter, Gooners across the world reacted in resignation to the strong chance that they might make it past the group stage only to be eliminated in the Round of 16, as they have for the last five seasons.
Arsenal out in the last 16 AGAIN

Arsenal have got Bayern. Second place finish and get knocked out in the last 16 it is. — Jude (@ManWhoWentToMow) August 27, 2015
Last 16 is called the Arsenal round #CLDraw

I’d actually prefer Arsenal to be knocked out of Europe in the group stage than suffer the anger of losing in the last 16 again.

So the best arsenal can do is come second in their group and no doubt get knocked out by one of the big teams in the last 16

The saving grace for Arsenal fans was that even if they get swept by Bayern Munich in the Group Stage, they won’t face them in the Round of 16.
Arsenal can’t get knocked out by Bayern in the last 16 stage. That’s a bonus.

Or will they…
Arsenal will still, somehow, manage to get Bayern in the last 16.
