UEFA Champions League: Barcelona vs. Arsenal Live Stream (Free Online Video)
Barcelona vs. Arsenal Live Stream: All roads lead to Camp Nou as FC Barcelona and Arsenal meet this evening in the second leg of a UEFA Champions League last 16 game.
The Gunners lead 2-1 from the first leg at Emirates Stadium and manager Arsene Wenger is ready to take the “biggest gamble of his career” by fielding both Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie tonight. Fabregas has just recently recovered from a hamstring injury while Van Persie hurt his knee in the Carling Cup final and will undergo a late fitness test ahead of the kick-off.
Van Persie has scored 12 times in nine games, so his inclusion would provide a major boost for the Premier League side. Fabregas, on the other hand, is so desperate to play against his boyhood club and he said: “I’ve never played in the Nou Camp before and this will be one of the most exciting nights of my career.”
Barca, meanwhile, aren’t at full strength either with Carlos Puyol still nursing a knee problem and Gerard Pique suspended. However, the La Liga giants are very tough at home, and Wenger knows his men can expect the Blaugrana to play at their top form despite the unavailability of their top defenders.
Lionel Messi, the FIFA World Player of the Year, will once again pose the biggest threat for the Gunners but aside from him Barca have so much fire power, including David Villa, Pedro and Andres Iniesta.
The match kicks off at 20:45 CET.
UPDATE: Messi scored twice as Barca defeated Arsenal, 3-1, to win their round of 16 series, 4-3 on aggregate.
