Arsenal have drawn Östersund in the Europa League Round of 32. For those of you who don’t know who they are, they’re a small club from London.#UELdraw — SLEIGH BUCKS 🇦🇺🎅🏻 (@TheMasterBucks) December 11, 2017
Sporting Lisbon vs Astana must be one of the longest trips any team has had to make in European football! #UELdraw
