Barcelona's Cesc Fabregas, Alex Song want to face Arsenal

Surprise! Ex-Arsenal and current Barcelona players Cesc Fabregas and Alex Song would like to face the Gunners in Champions League. The last time the two sides met, Arsenal pulled off a dramatic 2-1 win at the Emirates Stadium with Song and Fabregas in the side, but ultimately fell to the Blaugrana at Camp Nou. The two players have since swapped Gunner stardom for substitute roles in Catalonia, but want to 'play against' their former side, in quotes, because they're hardly regular starters.

Said Fabregas, about the potential of the two sides playing in the Round of 16:

"[I would like us to play] Arsenal, for the affection and affinity I have with that club," he said. "I would be very excited to see the people with whom I lived for so many years. It would be a very special tie."

Alex Song echoed those sentiments.

"Of course I would like to play against Arsenal. For me to go back there, where I had seven magnificent years, would be something very special."

It's easy to hope something like this happens when you know your current side will be very heavy favorites to win.

Oh ... and when you know that your teammates, and not you, will ultimately be responsible for the inevitable victory.
