Highbury

On Sky

Tomorrow see's the final ever European game to be played on the hallowed turf of Highbury.

Arsenal's first ever Champion's League semi final tie see's them pair with Villarreal (as if you didn't already know)and with the possibility of not finishing 4th a very real one, Arsenal know winning the Champions League may very well be their only way of qualifying for the competition next season.

Like Arsenal, Villarreal have been the suprise package of the Champion's League this season although their path through the knockout stages has been arguably easier with them disposing of Rangers and Inter Milan.

When the last ball has been kicked of this two legged semi final, one thing will be certain, one team that nobody (aside from their own fans) tipped to be in the final will face either AC Milan or Barcelona in a match that will find out who will be the European Champions.

Arsene Says....................

Speaking on the impending move away from Highbury

Now it is getting close to the end, every time I walk in there I feel that there are not many more matches to come.

I feel part of my soul is in this stadium because many of the biggest moments of my sports career have been there. It will be something special because this stadium has a special soul and to lose it one day will be sad.

I feel it will help us [on Wednesday] because it is a special occasion. We want to be proud of that and we want this game to be remembered as the last European night for the Club at Highbury.

Arsenal Team News:

As reported by Vital Arsenal earlier today, Cesc Fabregas has recovered from injury to take his place in the side, Sol Campbell and Ashley did not make the grade and Theo Walcott makes the squad.

Player to watch: Thierry Henry

In this his final ever European game, Thierry Henry will shine as he has done all season in Europe, it is destiny that he becomes the first Arsenal captain to lift the European cup.

Villarreal Team News:

Two central defenders who's names I cant pronounce are out injured and their goalkeeper, Viera, also missies out.

Player to watch: Juan Ramon Riquelme

It's difficult to see why Barcelona let this tricky and pacey player go.

Predicted Line Up:-

Lehmann
Eboue
Toure
Senderos
Flamini
Hleb
Gilberto
Fabregas
Ljungberg
Pires
Henry
