For 20 teams, the UEFA Champions League group stage is within reach, and half of those teams will try and take the first step to getting there on Tuesday.
The final qualifying round for the Champions League kicks off with Arsenal and Udinese stealing the spotlight with the first-leg of their encounter in London. Arsenal, which finally lost Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona, just lost Emmanuel Eboue to Galatasaray and lost its appeal of Gervinho's red-card suspension, could certainly use an on-field lift to counter its off-field troubles. In order to get that, the Gunners will need to fend off Antonio Di Natale & Co. to protect its home turf.
