Wenger admitted that Arsenal's Champions League eliminator against Fenerbahce is a "strange situation" considering the Turkish club could win the tie and still be thrown out of the competition if their appeal against a two-year ban for match-fixing allegations is thrown out later this month.
"It's a strange situation," said Wenger. "They are basically suspended. It is a strange situation in different ways.
"They have been suspended to play in Europe, have appealed to a tribunal to the Arbitration of Sport. On top of that, nobody knows if they lose the case what will happen. It's a very strange situation.
"I looked at their squad and there is a lot of experience. We need to have a good performance and I am confident we can go through but it is a big task."
