Arsenal vs. Monaco

You and your kids will want to have your Arsenal junior away kit or cup shirt ready in February, when knockout phase play begins for the 2014 2015 UCL. Arsenal is set to take on Monaco in a two-leg series, with the first leg scheduled for February 25, and the second for March 17. The first is a home game for the Gunner squad, while the latter will be played away.

Technically, Monaco's Red and Whites should be considered the frontrunner for these matches. After all, the Italian squad won their group (which consisted of Bayer Leverkusen, Zenit St. Petersburg, and Benfica). Meanwhile, Arsenal placed second in theirs (which included Borussia Dortmund, Anderlecht, Galatasaray).

However, looking at wins so far in the 2014 2015 Champions League, the team behind the Arsenal kids away shirt 2014 2015 is actually doing better. The Gunners won four of their Group D matches, drew one, and lost one. Borussia Dortmund actually had an identical record, but claimed first place thanks to a superior goal difference rating.

The Red and Whites, on the other hand, only won three games en route to their win in Group C, drawing two and losing one. The Italian team also didn't play in the Champions League tournament last year, so there is less of a precedent to judge how far they could go this year.

Speaking of precedent, there is hardly one for these teams even facing each other. They've only played each other head-to-head once in memory, and it was recent. Monaco beat Arsenal 1-0 in the Emirates Cup, just played in August. Other than that, the two clubs have no recorded history together.

Better Than Last Year

Even if the Gunners have lost to the Red and Whites recently, though, kids in the Arsenal junior away kit or grown-up supporters in the adult home jersey are undoubtedly still thrilled about the 2014 2015 UCL draw. And that's because this time, they didn't draw against Bayern Munich.

Last year, Arsenal followed a very similar trajectory in the early stages of the Champions League to what has happened this season. They won four matches in the group stage, and they came in second to Borussia Dortmund-just like this year. In fact, the two years were such mirrors of each other that junior supporters in the Arsenal kids away shirt 2014 2015 were concerned that the similarities would continue.

A draw against Bayern Munich in the round of 16 would have been the worst kind of history repetition for the Arsenal football club. Not only did Bayern beat the Gunners in the round of 16 a year ago, but the German champions also progressed all the way to the semifinals (where they lost to eventual victors, Real Madrid).

Add the fact that Munich nearly went undefeated in the 2014 2015 group stage (winning five of their six matches, and losing one), and the team looks nearly unstoppable. Arsenal has a much better shot facing the Red and Whites in the knockouts.
