Report by Ian David Worthington
Tonight the World’s ‘best’ team , Barcelona, travel to the Emirates Stadium in London to take on the youthful brilliance of Arsenal. On exhibit will be some of the planet’s best gamers in Villa, Xavi, Iniesta, Pique, Alves, Valdes, Bojan, Mascherano, Van Persie, Fabregas, Arshavin, Nasri, Walcott and, of program, the very best in the sublime Argentinean Lionel Messi. Barcelona, given their European pedigree, especially more than the previous few seasons, will go into this encounter as robust favorites to make the following stage. Their La Liga form has been excellent as they have pulled away from large shelling out Real Madrid at the top of the table. David Villa, after a slightly sluggish begin by his quite higher criteria, as started off to discover the net as routinely as he did for his earlier club Valencia. Add to that the masterful passing of Xavi and Iniesta and the vision, ability and finishing of Messi and you can see why Barcelona top the ‘goals scored’ table by some margin on 71 from 23 video games (that’s more than 3 a objectives a sport!). The latest draw against Sporting Gijon would show up to be only a small blip in the quest for La Liga and Champions League glory. Arsenal, even so, will be no push-overs and their type this season has also been extraordinary. They are 2nd to the fantastic Manchester United in the Premier League table and have comprehensively beaten the mighty Chelsea amongst other folks already this season. They are in the Carling Cup Final and FA Cup, which means an unheard of Quadruple is even now a probability. The return from damage of the brilliant Dutchman Robin Van Persie has been a welcome enhance to the ‘ Gunners’, scoring an amazing ten targets in seven games. If Van Persie and Fabregas hit prime sort the Gunners will be a challenging side to beat on their house turf. Tomas Rosicky and Sami Nasri are back again in the Arsenal squad following damage, but Abou Diaby is unavailable due to a calf problem. Barcelona, who is need to be mentioned knocked Arsenal out of the Champions League final time, seem to have a most of their players offered for variety with the a single notable absence becoming Carlos Puyol. This game as all the ingredients of a Champions League cracker, and, in spite of Arsene Wenger talking about Arsenal as ‘massive underdogs’, is sure to be a aggressive and tough fought match. I personally fancy Arsenal to nick a a single aim lead from tonight’s very first leg, but all round imagine the skill, fitness, good quality and flair of Barcelona will see them prevail around the two legs.
