Jose Antonio Reyes knows who he wants to win Wednesday's Champions League Semi-Final between Barcelona and Milan.

Arsenal qualified for the Final following a backs-to-the-wall draw at Villarreal on Tuesday. They have the luxury of seeing two of Europe's great names battle it out this evening for the right to face them. Reyes will be a partisan observer.

"Being Spanish, I would prefer to meet Barcelona in the Final," he said. "It would be a great European Final and a big challenge for us."

Whoever Arsenal face, Reyes is aware it will be an emotional night at the Stade de France on May 17.

"It means a lot to me and to the rest of the team," he told PA Sport. "We are all delighted and excited about the Final.

"It's difficult to describe what I feel with words. The mood in the changing room was of sheer joy and there was no one more happier than Arsène Wenger.

"Having struggled in this game, it's good for us to enjoy our qualification. It wasn't a penalty. I think everyone saw that it wasn't except the referee. But I have to congratulate Jens Lehmann. He made a very good save and had a very good game. He was our saviour this evening."
