Champions League Draw: Arsenal to face Barcelona in the round of 16

Champions League: Round of 16 Draw

The draws for the round of 16 in the Champions League were conducted today. The 16 teams were placed in two pots.

Pot A: Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Manchester United, Real Madrid, Schalke, Shakhtar Donetsk, Tottenham

Pot B: AC Milan, Arsenal, FC Copenhagen, Inter Milan, Lyon, Marseille, Roma, Valencia

The results of the draw are as follows:

  • Arsenal vs Barcelona
  • Olympique Marseille vs Manchester United
  • FC Copenhagen vs Chelsea
  • AC Milan vs Tottenham Hotspur
  • AS Roma vs FC Shakhtar Donetsk
  • Valencia vs FC Schalke 04
  • Internazionale Milano vs Bayern Munich
  • Olympique Lyonnais vs Real Madrid

So it’s Barcelona again for us. The first leg will be at our home and the second leg away.

Last time we were knocked out by them in the quarter finals. This season they are also in top form but as Wenger has said that things change pretty quickly in football. Two months is a lot of time and let’s hope we have our best team available and we can overcome them. But first we have to focus on the Premier League.

Update: The dates for the two-legged match are as follows:

First leg
Arsenal v Barcelona
Wednesday 16th February 2011
Kick Off: 19.45 (UK Time)
Venue: The Emirates Stadium
 
Second leg
Barcelona v Arsenal
Tuesday 8th March 2011
Kick Off: 19:45 (UK Time)
Venue: Nou Camp

    How many goals this time Arsenal will get.

    And another golden chance for Messi to score half dozen goals against weakest arsenal defense.

  2. Two of you are stupid. Let’s see what will happen. I am sorry for barca, they will not even reach the quarter finals this season.
