Both Talksport pundits nave been overwhelming in their support for the Gooners this evening. Gray and Brazil, both Scotsmen both believe that keeping British sides in the competition would do nothing but good for the profile of Premiership football.
Arsenal may have had their share of less than happy moments of late but they couldn’t want for a classier opposition or a better kept surface to play on.
The world will be watching as this is not just a big Champions League game, this is a game where the so called ‘best side in the world’ could either press on in the ultimate tournament or get knocked out of it.
It’s slender lead that Arsene Wenger’s charges hold and they will certainly need it. Difficult to recall a game where so much pre match analysis has been generated. The Camp Nou will be rocking.
A late fitness test for Van Persie will keep the suspense riding high until late in the day, but Arsenal need players like Arshavin to come to life and if Arsene can unlock all the talents at his disposal Arsenal can win it. If they run around like school kids as they did against Birmingham they’ll be humiliated. It’s in their hands.
