The game only leaves Praha with more advantage as Arsenal would have to travel to Czeck Republic for the second leg tie.
Slavia Praha’s manager believes his side did a good job which would have to be done better as there were loopholes that needed to be filled.
“Arsenal proved their qualities. They have great players, quick and technically skilled,” he said.
Jindřich Trpišovský went on to promise his side will be a better side on their next encounter. “We need to get better for the second leg, this wasn’t our best performance.
“We wanted to press high, but we couldn’t really work together. On the other side, our pressing led to the equalizer. The lads did their best at the end.”
The draw also took the visitors unbeaten spell up to 22 as they also dished out message to their host after the draw.
Right on their twitter page, Praha sent words of gratitude to the English side on how they were well treated and during their visit.
As well did promise to return the favor when they receive the North London based team on their home ground.
