Mission Possible - Gunners 15/2 to win at Nou Camp

Last updated : 06 April 2010 By Paddy Power

The fighting spirit displayed in coming back from 2-0 down last week must be in evidence again but fans will remember that Arsenal have reserved some of their finest European performances for away trips (Inter Milan? AC Milan anyone?). The team may be rocked by injuries but stranger things have happened and 15/2 is a huge price for them to get the win they need tonight.

The win looks the most likely route to securing qualification as Barca’s away goals will be hard to better in the draw – however, 2-2 would send the tie into Extra Time and even penalties. If you fancy The Gunners to just go through and you aren’t sure or don’t care how, then it’s 9/2 for a Semi Final berth.
To qualify for next round
Barcelona                     1/8
Arsenal                         9/2
Wenger is unlikely to be too gung-ho in his approach early on, with his eyes set on containing the free-flowing football of Barca on their home turf and perhaps using the pace of Theo Walcott to hit the Catalans on the break. A solid defensive showing is surely key so either Mikael Silvestre or Sol Campbell will have to be the rock and it could be that the odd goal will be the aim for The Gunners, although there is huge money to be made if you fancy Arsenal to upset the odds – 75/1 for 2-0?

Nicklas Bendtner was the hero for Arsenal’s Premier League bid on Saturday and he could be the man to spearhead one of the great European results – his touch and physical presence could be the key to unsettling Barca’s defence and he is 9/1 to break the deadlock. Theo Walcott is one player Barca fear and if his turn of pace can get him clear at any point, he has a good chance to repeat his match-turning performance of the 1st Leg by sticking one away – he is 11/1 to score first. Elsewhere, midfield maestro Samir Nasri must shoulder the creative burden in the absence of Cesc Fabregas – a repeat of his wonder goal against Porto would be handy – and he is a tasty 16/1 to score first
