Classic Arsenal v Barcelona: Champions League Final, 2006

Posted by - March 31, 2010 - Arsenal, Champions League

Back to the future, once again

Manchester United v Bayern Munich wasn’t the only old school Champions League final thrown up by this year’s quarter-final draw. The connections between Arsenal and Barcelona go a long way beyond a love of playing football properly and their encounter in 2006.

The name Thierry Henry is still very much linked to the Gunners, while Catalan Cesc Fabregas has long been reported as being the next man Barca want to travel the well trodden route between the two clubs.

So it is all set up for a fantastic game of football. 0-0 anyone?
