Arsenal vs Barcelona Prediction
Previous matches between Arsenal vs Barcelona were more than exciting and on every matches between these two team we have seen at least three goals.
Arsenal have managed to beat Barca only once and the home field is their chance, because it will be hard for them to make positive result at Nou Camp, so they have to play open. Visitors are much stronger than Arsenal, in this moment, and they are favorites to win this game, but I expect goals here, at least three.
