Barcelona anyone?

After another faller with Mansony I am heading for despair soon! Ridiculous bad luck this last few days but I am still content and have not lost my discipline once. In times gone by, bad luck like this could have ended up costing me hundreds as I would have been accustomed to chasing my losses!

Onwards and upwards though and tonight is the return for the mighty Barcelona and fortunate Arsenal in the Champions League match. I got a good result when the first leg ended 2-2 and I am hopeful of tonight as I firmly believe that Barcelona with home advantage will prove too potent for a weakened Arsenal side.

I struggle to see Arsenal retaining any sort of possession on one of the biggest pitches in Europe. In my head though I am allowing for Arsenal to score at some stage during the game. Arsenal will be very keen to defend well as going behind early could make it a very long, tiring and tedious evening for them.

Barcelona do have injuries and suspensions which weakens their side but they should have too much for an Arsenal team that is best described as just "pretty good" when Fabregas is not present.

My Selections:

0.5pts on each of the below -

3-1 Barcelona 10-1 with various Bookmakers
4-0 Barcelona 19-1 with Expekt
4-1 Barcelona 22-1 with Expekt

*Expekt is an International Bookmaker that offers value odds on certain markets. Luckily this time its value on two scorelines I think could occur!
