Arsenal vs Sunderland Live Stream
Though both the clubs, Arsenal and FC Basel looks equally impressive, at least on their winning ability, but if we go to the current season of Champions League, Arsenal will be deemed to make a relatively slow start. The last season of the premier league was not more than consolation for Arsenal as it had finished at number third and in this season too it will remain to be seen as to whether it becomes able to retain its even its previous place or not, as other teams have strengthened their squads.
Basel Club, as the football aficionados and pundits widely believe have an edge over the Arsenal clubs, at least psychologically. Their records are recent performances have made the club a clear favorite. But, what will happen at the end of the season, only time can tell. Till now, keep your fingers crossed.
