Champions League: Arsenal v Barcelona - Tickets

Cesc Fabregas v Lionel Messi

Arsenal v Barcelona

Most fans believe tonight's match will be determined by the performances of Cesc Fabregas for the Gunners and Lionel Messi for Barcelona.

Recently, Fabregas received a transfer bid from Barcelona, but stayed at the Emirates untiol the end of the season, but is expected to be the subject of another bid this summer.

Arsenal midfielder Fabregas began his career with Barcelona, and will soon face Barcelona in the last-16, seeking to do better than his performance last season when Lionel Messi scored four goals.

If Barcelona want victory against Fabregas' side, they must stop the Spanish playmaker.

"Cesc Fabregas is a worldwide star,"

"I am a lover of his game and I sincerely have belief in his presence at our club. Cesc is a player able to succeed at any club in the world. I understand Arsenal's position but it would be sensational if he is with us for the next campaign," remarked David Villa.

"We need to stop Cesc. At this moment he is thinking only about Arsenal and is looking to defeat us. He is a super professional."

"Cesc is not the only key for the Gunners. Van Persie has rediscovered his level in attack and our defenders must be very focused," said Villa. ''The key to this match will be containing Arsenal's attack and profiting from our own chances to score goals. We need to score to increase our options for the second match.

"This tie will not be easy. Today Barcelona and Arsenal play the best game in Europe because it will be beautiful for the spectator. My dream is to win the Champions League. The media makes us favourites but footballers can only think from match to match."
