Competition: Champions League
Market: Arsenal and Barcelona to draw
Odds: 14/5 @ Coral
Arsenal welcome Barcelona to the Emirates Stadium in the first leg of the Champions League knockouts tonight, and are hoping they can earn a positive result without conceding an away goal to the Catalan giants.
Arsenal have turned their poor form around recently with consecutive wins in the Premier League, but their inconsistent form in the Champions League could see Barcelona taking advantage. The Spaniards have been in top form in Europe and boast the best attack in the world.
As a result, the home side are going to be up against their biggest challenge. Barcelona are favourites to go all the way in the Champions League, which would make them the first side to retain it, and given their own domestic form, Luis Enrique’s men fancy their chances of a deep run.
Barcelona have enjoyed eight consecutive wins in their domestic league ahead of their meeting with Arsenal, and haven’t lost a game in any competition since October. However, Arsenal have drawn one and won one of their last two home meetings with the Spaniards before.
As a result, Coral are giving odds of 14/5 for Arsenal and Barcelona to play out a stalemate at the Emirates Stadium.
