Arsenal are 13/2 with Ladbrokes to repeat last year’s heroics and come from behind and draw with Barcelona.
The Spanish champions are 5/6 to win, with Lionel Messi 1/1 to score at any time. The Gunners are 3/1 underdogs to win on the night, and 10/3 to qualify at the expense of the tournament favourites.
Arsenal leaked six goals in the sides’ two games last year, and are 10/3 to keep the Catalans at bay. Barca are 2/1 to keep a clean sheet, with Robin van Persie 13/8 to continue his red hot form and score at any time.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Barcelona are rightly the favourite for this game despite Arsenal’s recent form. Irrespective of the result we will be breathing a sigh of relief after the game as both sides have been well backed in the outright market.”
