Arsenal London Champions League VideoBarcelona vs Arsenal 2-1 - UCL Final 2006 - Highlights (English Commentary) HD
Saint-Denis was chosen to host the final in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the first European Cup final in , held in nearby Paris at the Parc des Princes , now home of Paris Saint-Germain.
Before the final an estimated 1. Arsenal went into the match with the record for the longest time without a conceding a goal.
They had gone minutes without conceding since conceding against AFC Ajax in the group stages. Arsenal were featuring in their first European final six years to the day since their last final.
Arsenal lost the subsequent penalty shootout 4—1. Of the players who featured in that final, only Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp remained at the club, whilst Sylvinho , who had featured for Arsenal in the final, was now a Barcelona player.
The final was the first time that Arsenal had reached the showpiece match; in doing so they became the first club from London to feature in the final.
Two more losses preceded the final and , and their only success in the competition came in when they beat Sampdoria. Barcelona player Deco dismissed the notion of Barcelona being favourites, insisting they would not be complacent: We need to be serious, calm and fully concentrated so that we don't make any errors".
Neither side had been beaten en route to the final, with Arsenal only conceding two goals in their 12 matches before the final, including a record ten successive matches without conceding.
Barcelona, on the other hand, had scored goals in all competitions before the final. The two finalists were guaranteed a financial windfall from their progress to the final.
As Liverpool won the competition for the fifth time they were entitled to keep the trophy, creating the need for a new trophy.
Barcelona were expected to line up in a 4—2—3—1 formation, with Ronaldinho, Ludovic Giuly and Deco supporting Samuel Eto'o who would be deployed as the lone striker.
He had pulled a thigh muscle during the second leg of their match with Chelsea, and had not played since, though he was included in the 22 man squad for the final.
Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard stated he would leave it late before deciding whether to select him. Arsenal were expected to line up in a 4—5—1 formation, with Thierry Henry as the sole striker.
On the morning of the final it emerged that the assistant referee for the game Ole Hermann Borgan had posed for photographs in a Barcelona shirt for Drammens Tidende , a Norwegian newspaper.
Norway's head of refereeing Rune Pedersen stated that "It is an unwritten rule that referees should not do anything that can doubt their impartial stance".
Lionel Messi did not feature in the match day squad, despite returning from injury and featuring in the man squad, whilst Henrik Larsson in potentially his last game for the club was among the substitutes.
Thierry Henry was deployed as the lone striker, with Fredrik Ljungberg playing off his shoulder. As both teams' first-choice kits featured a shade of red, Arsenal wore their yellow away strip, while Barcelona wore their traditional blue and maroon striped kit.
Arsenal won the coin toss and Barcelona kicked off. The next attack in the seventh minute resulted in Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann saving from Ludovic Giuly after he shot from a narrow angle.
With 18 minutes played, Lehmann became the first person to be sent off in a European Cup final after he brought down Samuel Eto'o outside the Arsenal box.
Arsenal subsequently substituted Robert Pires for Manuel Almunia , their substitute goalkeeper. After 61 minutes with Bareclona still losing 1—0, Henrik Larsson joined the fray as a Barcelona substitute for Mark van Bommel.
Next, Iniesta sent a pass through the inside-left channel to Larsson whose one touch, right foot lay-off quickly released Eto'o to equalise for Barcelona.
After controlling the ball, Larsson made a left footed return pass to Belletti. Belletti ran onto control the ball with his left foot.
He then used his right to shoot through Almunia's legs to score at the near post. The remaining minutes saw Arsenal replace Hleb with Reyes in an attempt to equalise, but Barcelona had the best chance during this period, only for Giuly to hit his shot straight at Almunia.
Following this, Larsson impeded the Arsenal goalkeeper and was cautioned as a result. The match finished soon after with Barcelona winning 2—1.
The subsequent match, played on 25 August , was won 3—0 by Sevilla. Man of the Match: He would go higher.
Not to over-promise and not to put extra pressure on him. It is part of the structural reshuffling the executive team have offices at both the training ground and the Emirates where it has not gone unnoticed that Venkatesham has kept his desk within the open plan workspace rather than take the formal room upstairs, as he prefers to mix and talk to people.
This reshuffle coincides with a radical period of change at Arsenal. Now with full ownership that commitment has grown to a higher stage.
They are sports-passionate people and they like to win. The relationship with the Kroenkes is clearly important, and joking aside the WhatsApp group serves a purpose.
Lines of communication are kept open. Football moves so quickly you can have a conference call on Wednesday morning and then on Wednesday afternoon there is an issue and we need to talk to the guys.
So what might happen if an extraordinary opportunity, something exceptional outside the normal self-sustaining model, dropped into their laps? Would they take that to the Kroenkes and might they be receptive?
