As Fenerbahce prepares to host Arsenal in their Champions League playoff first leg match, the club is also awaiting the outcome of an appeal decision over their European ban. They won't know the Court of Arbitration for Sport's decision until tomorrow, but If things don't go their way in that case, the result of this tie may not matter.
For the players all they can do is win and hope things go their way off the field as well. Fenerbahce's lineup is strong featuring Raul Meireles and Dirk Kuyt, with experienced striker Pierre Webó leading the attack.
Arsene Wenger's lineup is a first choice group, as you would expect, with Santi Carzola getting the start in the midfield after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's injury over the weekend.
Arsenal starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Wojciech Szczęsny; Bacary Sagna, Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny, Kieran Gibbs; Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshire; Theo Walcott, Tomáš Rosický, Santi Carzola; Oliver Giroud.
