Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque has commented on the forthcoming UEFA Champions League quarter final between Arsenal and Barcelona stating that it will be a “beautiful” occasion.

The former Real Madrid coach also stated that he hopes the Blaugrana can go all the way to the final and repeat the success of last year’s final win over Manchester United in Rome.

“It will be beautiful. It’s two big teams who play good football,” he said, according to AS.

“Hopefully they [Barcelona] can repeat the success of last year. It’s a pity Real Madrid got eliminated but if Barca deserve to get to the final hopefully the will.”

The first leg will be played at the Emirates on March 30 with the second leg at Camp Nou on April 8.
