Europeans dreams are on

Gael Clichy would love the prospect of meeting and conquering old foe Barcelona in this year’s Champions League final.

The Gunners were on the end of agony in Paris when Barca triumphed in 2006’s showdown.

Arsenal do have to overcome the quarter-final obstacle of Villarreal and then possibly Manchester United or Porto in the semis before facing any probabilities of a reunion final with Barcelona this season.

There are no assurances about any match-ups yet, but Clichy would really relish a chance to make up for 2006’s heartache.

The French defender said: “The final of the Champions League will be played against a top European team. But I think, and have a feeling, it will be Barcelona.

“They have so many great players. It will be good for revenge because they beat us last time. However, it is a task to go through by beating Villarreal and Manchester United.”

Should Gael be careful what he wishes for?
