Former Arsenal teammates Cesc Fabregas and Tomas Rosicky have reunited during a Champions League tie.
What’s the story?
The Spaniard’s AS Monaco took on the Czech’s Sparta Prague in the third qualifying round of Europe’s premier competition.
Fabregas is currently on the books of the Ligue 1 outfit, whilst Rosicky is the sporting director at his hometown club.
Monaco eased to victory over their opponents, winning 2-0 and taking a strong lead into the second-leg next week.
Fabregas joined Arsenal in the summer of 2003 from Barcelona, whilst Rosicky joined in 2006 from Sparta. Both players were teammates for five years before the Spain international returned to his boyhood club.

Fabregas and Rosicky would’ve been a great combination for Arsenal had they played together on more occasions.
The Czech Republic international missed an awful lot of games due to his mass injury problems.
Meanwhile, the Monaco ace also endured his fair share of issues on the fitness front.
All in all, it means the duo were on the pitch together just 90 times during five years. And that proves to be very sad.
With Fabregas’ technical quality and Rosicky’s eye for goal, the pair could’ve shone together. If only we’d seen them in tandem more often…
