RC Lens made a historic appearance in the UEFA Champions League with an impressive start. The French Ligue 1 side secured a point against Sevilla despite conceding first.
Lens, so far, has been one of the fastest-growing football clubs in French football despite having a small budget and a relatively short history at the biggest stage.
Arsenal announced their return to the Champions League with a big win over PSV Eindhoven at the Emirates Stadium two weeks ago.
The Gunners scored four against the Dutch side courtesy of goals from Bukayo Saka, Leandro Trossard, Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard.
Mikel Arteta’s men thrashed AFC Bournemouth 4-0 last weekend in preparation for the game against RC Lens in France.
