Udinese coach Francesco Guidolin still expects Arsenal to present solid competition on Tuesday night despite the exit of captain Cesc Fabregas.
The Spanish midfield ace made a long-awaited return to his boyhood club on Monday after eight years in North London with the Gunners.
His departure leaves a gap in Arsene Wenger's midfield for the first leg of Arsenal's UEFA Champions League play-off tie with Udinese at Emirates Stadium.
But Guidolin insists the French boss has enough quality at his disposal to balance the skipper's exit.
He told The Sun: "This will not change much for us - any Arsenal team will be full of quality.
"Yes, they will be without some very important players, but there are also others who are just as good.
"I consider Arsenal one of the best teams and they have a lot of great players who can cause problems to any team in the world."
