Gunners to host Sevilla

Posted on September 4, 2007

Arsenal learned the identity of their first Champions League group stage opponents when Sevilla made sure of their place with an emphatic 4-1 win at AEK Athens.

The Andalusian side completed a 6-1 aggregate success in the Greek capital in a match postponed from last Tuesday due to the tragic death of Sevilla wing-back Antonio Puerta.

Juande Ramos’ side, who lost in the UEFA Super Cup to AC Milan on Friday night, were never in trouble against AEK and established a 3-0 lead by half-time.

A Luis Fabiano penalty opened the scoring after 31 minutes and further efforts from Seydou Keita and Luis Fabiano settled the contest.

Aleksandr Kerzhakov made it 4-0 on the night before former FIFA World Player of the Year Rivaldo pulled one back from the spot late on.

Sevilla go into Group H alongside the Gunners, who they visit on September 19, Slavia Prague and Steaua Bucharest.
