Arsenal and Celtic headline a list of sides seeking to clinch a place in the lucrative Champions League group stage this week in the return legs of the playoffs.Ten-man Arsenal escaped Turkey with a goalless draw against Besiktas but the Gunners remain on course for a 17th consecutive group phase appearance although they will be without suspended midfielder Aaron Ramsey for Wednesday's second leg.Arsene Wenger's men displayed their resilience by coming from two goals down to salvage a 2-2 draw at Everton in the Premier League Saturday and Jack Wilshere believes the result puts them in a perfect frame of mind to wrap up the tie with Besiktas.The north London club boasts a proud record of having never lost a Champions League qualifying tie and although last week's draw was the first time in 13 matches they'd failed to win a playoff encounter, the goal is quite simple for the Arsenal boss.
