A very very tough test for Arsenal, and it will likely be another 'upset' if they move past the Italian champs. But the Gunners do have a chance. Juventus has not been overly impressive in some recent matches, including both legs against Werder Bremen and this weekends draw against Roma. But they are ever dangerous and are never going to be an easy side to play. Arsenal have been finding their form in recent matches, and if they play to their best, they can beat any side.

I think we have a relatively good chance. I think there will still be lots of momentum left over from the Real Madrid tie. I'm not sure enough to put any money on it though... I'd say the odds for both sides are about 1/1 in my book.

And on Vieria's much heralded return to Highbury, its his replacement who has a statement game. Huge win for Arsenal. Doesn't put them them into the semi finals yet, but its a huge step in the right direction.

Arsenal played a fantastic 90 minutes

Juventus seemed like a 2nd Division poor team

Winning in Turin is going to be very difficult. But Juventus will be missing Patrick Vieira, Jonathan Zebina, and Mauro Camronesi. That will make Arsenal's task slightly less difficult.

Unfortunately they only showed the Braca-Benfica game here in the States, so I'm trying to find at least some video clips of the game on-line.

Well, looks like Cesc and Eboue will be going to Turin afterall... good. And ESPN is showing the game in the US this time!! That's right, screw you Barca/Benfica!
