Barcelona v Arsenal
UEFA Champions League Last-16 2nd Leg
Live on BT Sport Europe / BT Sport Europe HD
Barcelona heads into this clash following a 6-0 hammering of Getafe in La Liga. That win means the Catalan giants are now unbeaten in 37 games in all competitions. Luis Enrique’s side have looked unstoppable this season and are aiming for their 12th straight home victory in this clash in all competitions.
The Barcelona front three of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez will once again be difficult to stop. Messi got a brace in the first leg and will be looking to increase his goal tally for the season in this clash. The Catalan giants are big favourites to win this clash at odds of 1/ 4 with BetVictor.
Arsenal’s season has come crashing down on them in the past month or so. The Gunners suffered a 2-1 home defeat by Watford in the FA Cup quarter-final last time out and their form has taken a worrying dip.
Arsene Wenger’s side are struggling for goals and clean sheets, which is never a good combination. The Gunners have lost five of their last seven games, a sequence that incidentally began with the first leg defeat in this tie.
The visitors will try to remain solid and hit the Blaugrana on the counter-attack, but their odds of 12/1 with William Hill illustrates how much badly the odds are stacked against them recording a win in the Nou Camp.
Former-Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez will be hoping to make an impact against his old club and the Chilean is odds of 11/2 with Betfair to find the net on his return to Catalonia.
Sorry Arsenal fans but I cannot see anything other than a Barcelona win, with probably over 2.5 goals scored, which is available at odds of 8/15 with Paddy Power.
