Manager of Arsenal Football Club, Arsene Wenger, has emphasized the importance of his team finishing top in their UEFA Champions’ League group.

Wenger said that he would “feel guilty” if the club is handed a difficult draw in the last 16 as a consequence of dropping to second place in the group.

The Gunners currently top the Group F table, but depending on results, they could find themselves tied with Borussia Dortmund and Napoli on 9 points heading into the final game.

Wenger, though, is intent on reaching the 12 point tally after the game at the Emirates Stadium against Marseille on Tuesday, giving his side the best chance of qualification into the next round and also claiming top spot in the group.

Barcelona will however look to secure their place at the top of Group H when they visit Ajax Amsterdam on Tuesday night.

The Catalans top the table with 10 points from four matches and need a point to secure top spot, while Ajax are currently placed third with 4 points; a point behind second-placed AC Milan.

Gerardo Martino’s side have won three and drawn one of their opening four matches but go into this clash without some key players who have been side-lined by injury.

The Spanish giants will be missing the services of goalkeeper Victor Valdes, utility player Adriano Correia, fullback Dani Alves and star forward Lionel Messi.
