Being a hardcode Arsenal fan, I would love to think we had a chance but having seen Barca play a couple of times this year, I really can't see it happening.

We need to win at home and not concede any goals, then we'll have to have a backs-to-the-wall performance over there.

The problem is, I can't see us stopping Barca from scoring tonight.

I can dream can't I?

Barca only managed a draw with Sporting Gijon the other day, so they're capable of not doing the job. I think arsenal, on their day, can match Barcelona. Van Persie is in awesome form, so was Nasri (he's meant to be fit now, right?).

Any team can match any team... but if both are at their best, Barcelona are much better than Arsenal, imo.
Did you watch the match at the weekend TS? Although, Barca were not at their best by any means... they still should have pumped them. :P Just wan't their day, the shots just weren't hitting the back of the net.
That can happen to any team - it could happen again tonight, although I just have a feeling it won't. :hmm:

@Dark - Even if Arsenal do get a win tonight, and somwhow stop Barca from scoring - I can't see Arsenal going the Camp Nou and playing backs to the wall, it's just not in them to do it, lol! Which could eventually be their downfall against Barcelona!

@TS - Yes, Nasri has been awesome this season, and is fit and available for the match - however, I think he will start on the bench, not being fully fit yet.

Barcelona have their full team, minus Puyol. Arsenal basically have their full team too - and are playing well, which makes it all the more exciting! :w00t:

Edit; Jesus Christ, didn't realise I made such a wall of text!

i cannot see arsenal winning...either leg...

walcott is the key for arsenal to get anything out of the game...i think the weakest part of the barca team is the defence / fullbacks...if walcott has a good game (and depending on what wing wenger plays him) he will force barca to sit a bit deeper, that will help them...

but if you look at the few times barca have lost recently , hercules, inter last year, teams line up with two banks of four & hit really fast on the counter...wenger will not & cannot set his team up to do that...its against his principles or whatever...thats the problem...the manager...he's too much in love with the way his team plays & refuses to see that a really good defence will win games...
You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don't
owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to
put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission,
don't even start asking for theirs.

If Walcott plays against Maxwell/Abidal he has the better, however, if he plays against Alves, it's more close. :P

I changed my predictions :|

1st Leg - 2-2 (Villa double)
2nd Leg - 2-0 Barca


:|

-- Merged Double Post --

Made my bets! :D
2-2 Villa 1st scorer - £5 - Could win £325
Arsenal win 2-1 - £5 - Could win £60
and Walcott scoring anytime - £5 - could win £15


Villa has won me over £300 in bets altogether... he's my lucky player :P
