Arsenal fans sense conspiracy behind their Champions League draws

Arsenal fans are used to bemoan their luck when it comes to Champions League draws. The North London club have faced either Barcelona or Bayern Munich in the round of last-16 in four out of last six editions of the continental competition.

Their tendency to draw either of the two European giants has played a major role in their failure to advance beyond the stage of last-16 since the 2009-10 edition of the tournament.

Arsenal fans have often speculated about a possibility of a fixed draw, but their claims were often found to be born out of frustration rather than facts.

However, following former FIFA president Sepp Blatter’s recent claims that European draws were indeed rigged using hot and cold balls, Arsenal fans are left to wonder if their club has been a victim of a huge conspiracy.
