Former Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti believes Arsenal are already out of the Champions League even before tonight’s clash with Bayern. Naijaloaded understands.
The Italian suggests the stumble against Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiacous will come back to hunt the London club.
Arsenal must now pick up points in the double-header against Group F leaders Bayern Munich to boost hopes of advancing to the next round, but the Italian doesn’t see Arsenal achieving that.
“Arsenal are practically out because they must now face Bayern twice,” the former Chelsea boss told Goal
“I don’t agree with those that say that Arsenal have consistently disappointed in Europe, because they have been present in the Champions League for so many years. I just believe that the problem was the first game.
“The Gunners underestimated Dinamo Zagreb. Because of Dinamo’s CV, Arsenal miscalculated the challenge facing them.
“Dinamo had not won in the Champions League for many years and this affected Arsenal’s concentration. I believe that Dinamo were underestimated not only by the coach but also by the players.”
Do you agree with Ancelotti?
