I think with Xavi and Iniesta both potentially missing tonight Arsenal need to take advantage. Whilst the world, rightly, plays a fanfare for Messi, it's Xavi and Iniesta who make Barca tick. They seem to read each other minds, rarely mispace a pass and have an unbelievable work rate. Of course according to Billy Stark and undoubtedly several hibs.net posters they are far too wee to have made it in Scotland.

Over 2 legs though i struggle to see anything but a Barca win. Ibrahimovic is starting to find a bit of form again, Henry is looking better, Keita is back playing well after the ACN, they look decent at the back and Valdes is having his best season since he came into the team 7 years ago. And then, of course, there is Messi.

Messi scored the last time he played an English team. :greengrin

Ibrahimovic on the other hand - no goals in 10 games against English clubs is the stat I think.

Personally I think Arsenal will win this leg 1-0 (Nasri with the goal) and the second leg will be a draw ....... opinions eh ...... :cool2:

:agree: Second leg will be Sky though.

Which should mean we get the 2nd leg of Man United v Bayern. Set up to be a good game after last night's result.

Firstly I dont support any English side but how anyone would
not wish Arsenal well considering the brand of football they
play is beyond me, unless of course you are from Barcelona:wink:

Maybe because Barcelona play exactly the same brand of football. Only better and with the added bonus that it has brought them success in the last 5 years.

Unfortunately in most cases it's the chip-on-the-shoulders, anything English mentality. Cue another I'm-not-anti-English-just anti-English media post :bitchy:

Well, they are English....

Hopefully it is a great game of football, I admire both teams so hopefully just get some great football on show.

However, I won't be caring that much with the Hibees taking on UTD in a 6 pointer:greengrin:notworthy:

Fabregas misses the second leg.

Slightly harsh booking, although I'm not sure he should even be playing tonight - doesn't seem to be at the races at all.

Of course Zlatan can't score against English teams...

Arsenal will be without Fabergas for the 2nd leg, but Barca will be missing both Carles Puyol AND Pique.

Anyone's tie.

Indeed. Barca could (should?) have put this to bed in the first half.
