Jonas Eidevall will have to get the Arsenal squad up and running quickly to prepare for the Champions League qualifying ties which will be played on August 18 and 21.

In the semi-final tie Arsenal will meet Okzhetpes (KAZ). Should they win that tie they will play the winner from PSV Eindhoven (NED) v Lokomotiv Moskva (RUS).

Should they lose that tie, Arsenal will play a third place play-off game against the losers of the PSV Eindhoven (NED) v Lokomotiv Moskva (RUS).

Should Arsenal win those two games, they will not be seeded in Qualifying Round 2 and will therefore be drawn against Lyon, Wolfsburg, Rosengard (the previous club form the new Arsenal manager) or Slavia Praha.
