Gunners draw European Champions — give us your opinions on the match!
The draw for the Quarter Finals of the UEFA Champions League was completed earlier this afternoon, with Arsenal and Barcelona being drawn together for the first time since the 2006 final loss.
European Champs Barca boast former Gunners skipper Thierry Henry, who said he wanted to avoid playing Arsene Wenger’s men, will have his nightmare come true when the Catalan giants arrive at the Emirates Stadium for the first leg on 31st March.
Manager Wenger accepts that Arsenal will be labelled as underdogs, saying:
“I believe we will not be favourites but, for me, it will be a 50-50 game. That’s how we have to take it.
“When you get to the quarter-finals of the Champions League you play good teams and Barcelona are a good team.
“It will be an interesting, exciting game. We have to make sure we have the belief and focus right.”
