Since the draw was made on March 19, Arsenal and Barcelona fans have been looking forward to Wednesday night's Champions League Quarter-Final first leg.
According to Jordi Abel from leading Spanish radio station IB3, supporters in Spain see Arsenal and the Gunners as two of the world's most attractive teams.
We caught up with Jordi ahead of tonight's game for an insight in Barcelona's season, their key men and an emotional return for Thierry Henry.
IMPRESSIONS OF ARSENAL
"In Spain they are regarded as a really good team. They are seen as a team who plays a similar style of football to Barcelona. Both focus on attacking more than defending. It is not easy to find teams who play that way but it is the way of Arsène Wenger and Pep Guardiola. In Spain when we talk about Arsenal we talk about attacking football."
MAN OF THE MOMENT
"Thierry Henry started the season in poor form. He said after the France game against Spain that he was not physically fit but he has recovered now. He is not a young player so he has to be perfectly fit if he is to perform well. His first year at Barcelona was difficult for him, the second year was great for him, but this year he has played on the left because Zlatan Ibrahimovic plays as the central striker."
THE STORY SO FAR
"They are not as good this year as they were last year. The way the play is not as spectacular. They are winning as much as last season in La Liga but they are not scoring as many goals. Perhaps opposing teams have got to know how to stop them scoring."
THE ONE TO WATCH
"Lionel Messi is just 22 and Guardiola has said that it is too much to say he is the best player in history because he still has his career ahead of him. He does things I have never seen from a player before. He plays quickly with the ball very close to his feet. If he can maintain his level for another five, six, seven, maybe eight years, then he could win many titles."
CAUSE FOR CONCERN
"Andres Iniesta is a very important player but he is injured. He can play on the left wing, in midfield and in defensive positions. Along with Gerard Pique he is the only player who has played all of Barcelona's Champions League games this season. He is a very important player, more so than Xavi. He holds his position, doesn't lose the ball and helps with attacking and defending.
"Guardiola said they key is to have the ball more than Arsenal. Barcelona don't know how to play defensively, it is not their style, the same as Arsenal. It will be a very open game, and I expect that there will be goals. But you never know in these games because it is the first game of the two legs. Scoring an away goal is important. In the last round Barcelona scored an away goal in Stuttgart and it was very important to take confidence into the second leg."
