It took a hard fought win against a bitter North London rival, but Arsenal made it through to the last 32 in the FA Cup.
The Premier League leaders will open this weekend’s fourth round play with a match Arsenal takes on Coventry City at the Emirates Stadium ,after defeating Tottenham on Jan. 4, 2-0. The Sky Blues knocked off Championship bottom feeders Barnsley in the third round on a late strike from Leon Clarke, and they will need that magic again to pull an upset.
In Germany, the Bundesliga springs back to life after the winter break as Bayern Munich travel to Borussia Mönchengladbach with a short-handed squad. Franck Ribery, Javi Martinez, and Bastian Schweinsteiger are unavailable while Arjen Robben is on the bench, but Bayern will need to shake off the winter ice in order to continue their dominance in the national league.
Former Vancouver Whitecaps forward Camilo Sanvezzo could make his debut for Liga MX side Querétaro in the club’s fourth round match against Santos Laguna Friday night. A win for Camilo’s new club would let them jump Toluca, Cruz Azul and Club America into first place for the time being. Meanwhile, Club Tijuana and Morelia, each with four points, will look to position themselves near the top of the table before the rest of this weekend’s action.
