But a very interesting semi final clash…

Man United or Porto vs Villareal or Arsenal

Barcelona or Bayern vs Liverpool or Chelsea

Report from the official web site sayss:

Arsenal will play Villarreal in the Quarter-Finals of the Champions League.

Arsène Wenger’s team were paired with the Spanish club when the draw for the last eight of this season’s competition took place at Uefa Headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland on Friday.

Arsenal beat Villarreal en route to the Final in 2006. Kolo Toure scored the only goal of the Semi-Final first leg at Highbury and Jens Lehmann saved a late penalty to secure a goalless draw in the second leg.

Villarreal now have Gunners legend Robert Pires in their ranks plus former Arsenal defender Pascal Cygan.

The first leg of this season’s Quarter-Final will take place at El Madrigal on April 7 or 8 with the return leg at Emirates Stadium on April 14 or 15.

If Arsenal advance to the last four of the Champions League they will face Manchester United or Porto.

  • devday

  • Debs

  • Fabrez

    I got Chelsea v Liverpool and Man U v Porto rite! I’m pleased with that and pleased with the draw too :D

  • Fabrez

    Glad we got Villareal instead of Bayern who i thought we were gonna get!

  • Fabrez

    Barca v Bayern and Liverpool v Chelsea….must sees!

  • Fabrez

    Just remembered that Villareal didn’t do a half bad job against Man U…they aren’t bad…didn’t concede. But i expect us to get the better of them…we r the better team on paper i’d think. Any1 actually going to the home-leg on the 15th? It’s tempting me!

  • Debs

    Woulda wanted to, but I happen to be going on holiday on the 14th! Gutted!

    < ![CDATA[Result! I'm confident we should be able to get to the semis based on this draw. And being home in the second leg is a nice little bonus.

    Exciting stuff, the draw was always gonna throw up some good games with so many good teams, but seeing it written down just has my imagination going.

    Bring on April!]]>

    Lol. I wish I could do both at the same time! But if, or rather, when, we get to the semis, I’m definitely up for that!

  • Gooner Get Ya

    < ![CDATA[Walcott's out of England's U-21 squad cos of a knee injury! Don't know how seriuos or not serious it is but I'lm not a happy bunny!
    Interesting how the last time he got injured, he'd judt been called up into the England squad! Maybe we should keep him away from England for a while! lol]]>
