Olivier Giroud has uploaded a picture ahead of this evening’s Group F opener…
Arsenal’s French duo Olivier Giroud and Mathieu Flamini shared a friendly embrace during training, ahead of this evening’s Champions League Group F opener away at Ligue 1 side Marseille.
With Napoli and Borussia Dortmund also in the group, Arsenal will be desperate to pick up three points against Marseille, who are probably the weakest team on paper.
Giroud hurt his knee in the Gunners’ 3-1 win away to Sunderland at the weekend, but is likely to be fit for the crucial opening tie.
Flamini used to play for Marseille as a youngster, and will be desperate to put in a good performance against his boyhood club.
