The Champions League draw took place earlier today and the fear could be seen on the faces of the Arsenal supporters. Coming second in their group didn’t work out and they now have to face one of the two teams that everyone might have wanted to avoid.
Barcelona is the team that Arsenal have to face and earlier they only had to deal with a certain Messi but this time around with the likes of Luis Suarez and Neymar banging in the goals, it certainly won’t be an easy task for the Premier League team.
There still will be a lot of belief in the Arsenal camp after their great escape from their group stage and that could peter into the team against Barcelona. We provide three reasons why Arsene and Arsenal could well provide a great upset against the Catalan giants in the UEFA Champions League.
They beat Bayern and Barcelona aren’t invincible
Arsenal weren’t given a chance of making it through their Champions League group after their first two losses but the team did defeat Bayern at home. They then won their final game away from home and that could well give them the push they needed. Arsenal pretty much have made all the mistakes they could have in the group stage and that would serve as a learning curve for them.
Barcelona aren’t invincible as seen in the weekend when they let a two goal lead slip at home. With the likes of Ozil, Sanchez and Giroud in form, they could well harm Barcelona in greater ways than expected. Barcelona should be wary of the counter by Arsenal as that is lethal.
