Arsenal and Liverpool Win on the Road

Arsenal and Liverpool will head back home in their respective Champions League 3rd qualifying round ties ahead on aggregate, as the Gunners went to Prague and beat Sparta 2-0 while Liverpool came away from Toulouse with a 1-0 victory.

Both teams are in the driver's seat now to advance to the group stage of the 2007-08 edition of the Champions League tournament. This was to be expected, but you can't assume anything until you play the games and both English clubs went out and took care of business away from home. The second legs will take place in two weeks' time, and I fully believe Arsenal and Liverpool will make their hard-earned lead stand up and move on to the next phase of the competition.
