Arsenal vs Barcelona Champions League Quarterfinal 2010

It is a shocking news for Arsenal fans. The draw for the quarterfinals of Champions League 2010 took place a few minutes ago. Arsenal is going to play against Barcelona. It will be a repeat of Champions League final 2006 in which Barcelona won. Now, Arsenal supports would feel some bad because Barcelona is in superb form and Messi is in top form. There is Henry too who played for Arsenal in the 2006 final.
The only good news for England football fans is that Arsenal and Manchester United have been put in such a way that if both the teams can win the quarterfinal and semifinal matches then they would meet each other in the final. Thus, in theory, an all English final is possible. Manchester United will play against Bayern Munich and it can be tricky too.
I think that a lot will depend on the fitness of Arsenal players. Captain Cesc Fabregas is their main weapon. If he is fit then the Gunners can become a formidable opponent for Barcelona. It may become an emotionally difficult match for Thierry Henry. He still loves Arsenal.
