Arsenal have played 22 times against French clubs in European competition with a 59% success rate, recording 13 wins, 7 draws and 2 defeats (scoring 28 goals and conceding 13).
And while Arsenal lost the 2005-2006 Champions League Final against FC Barcelona at the Stade de France, the English side have never been beaten by a French club on French soil!
The only French clubs to have beaten Arsenal are Lens at Wembley in November 1998, and Auxerre at the Gunners' former home Highbury in October 2002.
Arsenal have found themselves up against French opponents in each of the last three seasons, but only in the group stages (Marseille in 2011 and 2013, Montpellier in 2012). And each time, the English side came out on top.
