Legia Warsaw v Arsenal - Fabianski is set to be the center of attraction

People are buying so many tickets for the Arsenal game than previously imagined.

Throughout the Polish League, the tickets are selling like "hot cakes" and for a princely amount too. Everybody loves The Arsenal, and a good majority are willing to dig deep into their pockets to watch the Gunners play live. The friendly will be played on Saturday, both teams see the match as a formal dress rehearsal for the upcoming season. They've played a significant amount of Pre-season friendlies (Legia Warsaw toured France, while their English counterpart choosed Austria). Arsenal play Liverpool next week at Anfield, and this might be the gaffer's last ditch plan to get his house in order in respect to his team's level of preparation for their upcoming tasks.

Meanwhile, it's gunner be a sort of homecoming for Arsenal's undisputed #2 Lucasz Fabianski. The 25-year-old goalie played at Legia for a couple of seasons before joining Arséne Wenger's bandwagon three seasons ago.

Speaking on the match and what it meant to him, Fabianski said: "For a very long time, I thought about the possibility of such an encounter, this for me will be an important event. I hope they won't cry. I am very happy the Legia fans are returning to the stadium, this is an important game for them.

"I can not wait for the hot atmosphere they are about to create at home."
