CL: Arsenal v. Barcelona
Arsenal have drawn Barcelona in the quarter finals of the Champion's League. It will be something of a rematch of the 2006 Champion's League final, between the two teams who are generally acknowledged to play the most attractive football of any club sides in the world. This is not the draw I would have chosen, if I were Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger. Barcelona are in a rare vein of form, led by the world's greatest player - by a substantial margin, Lionel Messi, who has scored something like 8 goals in his last 4 Champion's League matches.The Gunners will have to play out of their minds over the two-game series to have any chance of beating the Catalan giants.
