Arsene Wenger’s boys would be seeking to reach the quarter-final of the UEFA Champions League for the first time in five years. The club standing in their way is Monaco, it would be a very difficult battle for the Gunners as Les Monegasques would provide a stern challenge over the two-legged tie.
Wenger spent seven years at Monaco before moving to Japanese club Nagoya Grampus Eight and then joining Arsenal in 1996. At Monaco he was crowned the French Champions in his first season in charge and also won Coupe de France during his successful spell in France.
Arsenal
The Gunners boss confronts an injury-hit Monaco on Wednesday for the first time since leaving the club and he admitted that he was taken by surprise when the draws was made
"To be honest it was a surprise, because I always expect the most prestigious team to come out against us - that has happened the last five or six years," he told Uefa's official website.

"It's also one of those strange coincidences in life, because between them these two clubs account for 25 years of my life. That's very unusual, to meet in the Champions League. It was a little bit of an emotional shock."
Abou Diaby, Matheu Debuchy, Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta are all out of this feature with a long-term injury issues, Oxlade-Chamberlaine is unlikely to be rushed back from his ailment. David ospina is also suffering from a slight back problem giving way for Szczesny to start in goal.
Monaco
Following their 1-0 derby win on Friday against Nice a match they played with 10-men for 45 minutes due to the sending off of Aymen Abdennour, the victory moved them up to the fourth place on the Ligue 1 table.
Leonardo Jardim will be without Jeremy Toulalan who is suspended, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Ricardo Carvalho and Andrea Raggi are all out due to injuries.
