Tonight Barcelona and Arsenal face each other in the first leg of the Champion's League last 16 round. Before the game, both clubs have sent their midfielders to talk about the game: Andrés Iniesta and Mikel Arteta, two players who met at La Masia.

Arteta

"Being in La Masia was the most important and the greatest in my career."

"I realised I was forming myself in the best school in the world and I got a legacy and some principles from it that are at the foundation of my career."

"When I met Andrés, we all saw he had something special, different from all the others."

"Iniesta deserves it all and especially for the influence he's had on Barça and the naturalness with which he does it."

"The key of the draw will be the first game as we have much to see regarding the level of both teams."

Iniesta

"Arteta is a player with enormous quality who, in the youth categories, was a model in his team."

"Alexis is very unpredictable when it comes to attacking, and he is very strong physically and skilful."

"We have to take Arsenal's quality into account, their talent and the way they play and combine."
