Busquets vs Coquelin, And More: 3 Key Player Battles For The Crucial Champions League Clash (Barcelona vs. Arsenal)

3. Luis Suarez vs. Per Mertesacker


The pace, tenacity and hunger to do well on the pitch is what drives Luis Suarez and the Barcelona forward has shown that in bag loads this season for the Catalan club. Suarez is actually the player who has been incredible for Barcelona from day one of this season and stopping him will be a miracle if Arsenal can achieve it.

Mertesacker isn’t the quickest defender in the world and that is something that Suarez and the other attackers could well be looking to exploit when the English side meet Barcelona. Suarez should hold the upper hand in this battle and that could well decide which team scores first.
