Arsenal head into the Champions League final

26th April 2006

Arsenal qualified for their first Champions League final after a scoreless draw in the second leg of their semi-final against Villarreal on Tuesday.

Arsene Wenger's men won the first leg 1-0 at Highbury last week, but had to count on goalkeeper Jens Lehmann to stop a 89th minute penalty by Villarreal forward Juan Roman Riquelme to avoid playing extra-time.

Arsenal, who win the tie 1-0 on aggregate, also qualify for their first European final since the Uefa Cup final in 2000 which they lost.

The London club will now face the winner of the second semi-final between Barcelona and AC Milan in Spain on Wednesday.

Barcelona have the upper hand on last year's losing finalists, who lost the first leg 1-0 at the San Siro last week.

For the inside track on how Arsenal and Arsene Wenger have achieved so much success this year, why not find out more from some of our great footballing speakers such as Tony Adams, Bob Wilson or Frank McLintock.
