A Barca battering?

The draw for the semi finals of the Champions League was done just a little while ago, and it’s chucked up some intriguing ties. The biggest match-up has to be between Arsenal and Barcelona, a game which will get all sorts of sickening creaming over by football purists who don’t see the value in the aimless hoof up field and the flying elbow. It should also see a big bad hammering for the Gooners. Manchester United have been given a tricky tie too, drawn against Bayern Munich, who have two of the best wingers in the world in Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery. The draw is below, as is the semi-final line-up (which is a rubbish way to do the draw, Uefa).
