Arsenal Vs Barcelona:
In few hours time (19:45 GMT), Arsenal will face the current most potent attacking force in club football in 1st-leg of round-16 of Champions League competition, at the Emirates Stadium. The trio of Messi, Neymar and Suarez have scored 91 goals this season, so for Arsenal to have any hope of progressing in the championship, they must find a way of stopping these trio.
Arsenal coach, Arsene Wenger, during his pre-match interview, stated that with their good defensive record and good goalkeeper, they hope to stop Messi, Neymar and Suarez.
But despite being huge underdogs, it is not all about doom for Arsenal, because they beat Bayern Munich earlier on in this season’s Champions League. Also. Arsenal is no stranger to Barcelona’s fire-power. They have scored four goals in their last two matches against Barcelona at the Emirates.
One thing is certain, this is a feast for football lovers all over the world. Arsene Wenger is a great tactician and on a good day, Arsenal can cause damages to any team. Their style of play is in same ways similar to Barcelona’s style of play. Having said that, we think that Barcelona will prevail!
