Robin Van Persie Would 'Love' To Face Barcelona Or Real Madrid In Last 16 Of Champions League

Robin van Persie believes Arsenal have what it takes to end their five-year trophy drought after their 3-1 win against Partizan Belgrade secured their place in the last 16 of the Champions League for the 11th consecutive season.

The north London club sealed qualification thanks to a penalty from Van Persie and second half goals from Theo Walcott and Samir Nasri.

The story is too old to be commented.

I think he would rather get any easier team like shalke 04.

Just noticed thar theres only for chances. Barca - Real - Shalke - Bayern. Soo they need to get Shalke.

we're definitely getting one of the Spanish teams. I'd stake whatever-money-I-wish-I-had on it.

FootballZilla4381d ago

how yo know your going to get a spanish team?

no_more_heroes4381d ago

just a feeling. An eerie, feeling of foreboding.

If they do so, it`s gonna be a great dobbel match! Looking forward to it!

Its like saying: I really want to loose!

It doesn`t matter who you meeting now. If you want to win CL, then you have to beat all the­ strong teams. It is no difference between­ getting eliminated in this round and getting eliminated­ later.

And I think Arsenal are good enough to beat anyone they meet

Just hope the whole team is fit for that date and Arsenal may have a big chance of winning against anyone.

Fagerborgbk4381d ago

I agree, but if the are meeting Barca in the form they are in now they will loose

zico4381d ago

Nasri, Van Perise and Fabregas can make even Barca to shake....

pwneddemocrat4381d ago (Edited 4381d ago )

Xavi alone can make arsenal shake.
Messi will be feared.

let's not forget what happened last CL to arsenal by barca eh ;)

karim4381d ago

Arsenal had like 5 players injured in that 4-1 Hammering so they were pretty unlucky
