The first leg of the Udinese v Arsenal tie was a lot different than the scoreline suggested. Udinese adopted an unexpected attacking approach and caused Arsenal numerous problems with fast incisive counters. Unfortunately for Udinese, they couldn't put away any chances and ultimatley the fact they have no away goal, could be what sends them out.
I'm expecting a cracking Udinese v Arsenal second leg though with Udinese knowing they'll likely need 3 goals to go through as Arsenal don't draw blanks too often. Arsenal will be out to attack regardless of holding a 1-0 advantage and this will leave their defence open to the swift breaks of Di Natale and company once again. Di Natale, Serie A top scorer two seasons running looked extremely dangerous in the first leg and was almost a 27/10 winner for us last week when his free kick hit the bar.
Injury problems and absentees everywhere you look for Arsenal and an under strength defence that looks dodgy to say the least but Robin Van Persie will return from injury to bring back their big goal threat. We should see a great game with both teams on the scoresheet and Arsenal should be seriously tested on Wednesday night. It could even be the away goals rule that scrapes them into the Champions League proper.
