The match of the week, clash of giants, the battle between the two greats of Europe is going to take place this Wednesday. Two teams in great form and both fighting for the top spot in their respective leagues will come head to head in what’s going to be a cracker of a match.
Five times Champions League winners, Barcelona, is looking good for bagging another UCL trophy this year but they will have to face a stiff competition against Gunners. On the other hand, Arsenal would be desperate take first ever UCL trophy home. But first they would have to stop the attacking force of Barca in the shape of Neymar, Suarez and arguably the greatest player of this era Lionel Messi.
In previous seven head to head encounters, Barcelona is clearly dominating, winning 4 and 2 ended in a draw. Barcelona has a poor result against former Chelsea man, Peter Cech, scoring 0 goals. But, this has to end someday and you never know with the strike force of MSN (Messi, Suarez, Neymar), it would be difficult to keep them quiet this time around. Suarez has been in sublime form for Barca, netting 34 goals in 31 matches. Ex- Arsenal man Alexis Sanchez would be the man to watch for the gunners.
In first leg, at home, Arsenal would fancy their chances to take a defendable for second leg and not to give away any away goals. On the other hand, Barcelona would try hard to break the deadlock as early as possible and put Arsenal on backseat. Still, it is expected to be a cracker of a match. Just don’t miss out.
