Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson expects a red-hot Champions League semifinal against Arsenal.
For the first time, United must face English opposition in a two-legged European tie, with old rival Arsene Wenger lying in wait for a battle to decide who will go to Rome for the final on May 27.
"It would be tough no matter who we played but the fact it is another English side gives a different type of spice to it," said Ferguson.
"We are two good footballing sides, so it should be a terrific semi-final.
"Our game earlier in the season was fantastic. It was the way football should be played and we will look forward to it.
"The first leg is at home, so 1-0 would be perfect for us. But it is not going to be easy."
