Martin Odegaard has fond memories of the Champions League as a child and remembers watching Cesc Fabregas dazzle against Barcelona.
Ahead of the clash with PSV, he said: "I have played only a few games in the Champions League, in fact I played a qualifier for Stromsgodset way back when I was 15.
"That was as a late sub in a home game against Steaua Bucharest. I was on the bench for the away game, and we went out, but I can’t remember much about the games – they were a long time ago!
"Then just before I joined Arsenal I played a couple of times for Real Madrid in the Champions League, but that was during Covid times, so there were no fans in the stadium.
"I played at the San Siro against Inter and away to Shakhtar, but with nobody there to watch, it’s not the same at all. That’s why I’m so excited about tonight.
"I watched all the games growing up. I was allowed to stay up late to watch those matches, and I can still remember that special feeling of watching the games, hearing the anthem and dreaming about being there.
"I watched a lot of games, but a couple I really remember well are Theo Walcott’s amazing run against Liverpool at Anfield, and Cesc Fabregas’ performance against Barcelona at the Emirates when he was so good that night."
