Schalkes Papadopoulos misses Arsenal clash

23 October 2012 11:47

Schalke 04 have flown to London for Wednesday's Champions League clash against Arsenal with teenager Julian Draxler, but Greece defender Kyriakos Papadopoulos misses out.

The Greek centre-back has just returned to training after a bout of chicken pox, while 19-year-old Draxler is included despite breaking his forearm three weeks ago in the 2-all draw with Montpellier.

The teenager returned to training last week wearing a special cast over his arm, but it remains to be seen whether coach Huub Stevens includes him in the final match squad.

Arsenal are top of Group B after two wins with Schalke second and two points behind.
