Bellerin: I dreamed of playing at the Camp Nou when I was young

This Saturday's Barcelona vs Real Betis match will be extra special for Hector Bellerin, who is taking on the club whose academy he graduated from before joining Arsenal.

Now at Real Betis, the right-back is set to start against the Blaugrana this weekend, five years after his only other matches against the club, when Arsenal lost 5-1 on aggregate in the 2015/16 Champions League.


"I went to watch this team when I was in the Barcelona academy," he explained in a discussion for Real Betis' official media.

"You always dream of returning to the stadium and I dreamed of playing there when I was young.

"It'll be a big game for two reasons, as the three points are important for our position in the table and it's also nice on a personal level to return to the club where I grew up.

"We have to show that, thanks to the work we're doing every day, we can also do well against teams like Barcelona.

"The points on offer at the Camp Nou are very important."
