Arsenal is ready to face Villarreal

Share |

We can say that Thierry Henry's teammates will not feel they are upstarts if they get into the final, although Arsene Wenger's young side have already surpassed expectations by taking Arsenal further than they have been before.

In the other hand, Villarreal have also broken new ground with every round they have played in their debut Champions League season and are unbeaten in nine meetings with British sides.

The game pits Frenchman Wenger's pan-European connection against a South American-inspired Spanish club from a small coastal town which lies between Barcelona and Valencia.

Juan Roman Riquelme will try to prise open an Arsenal defence that has not conceded one goal in eight Champions League matches dating back to September.

"I find this a complicated tie, like the previous one against Inter Milan," the Argentine said referring to Villarreal's quarter-final win on away goals.

"Arsenal are a club with great players and (striker Thierry) Henry is the one who makes the difference," Riquelme admitted.

We must say that Riquelme's midfield tussle with Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas is in doubt with the Spanish teenager nursing a foot injury.

His absence would deal a severe blow to Arsenal's chances after he showed a maturity beyond his years in the wins over Real Madrid and Juventus in previous rounds.
