There’s little to no hope that Arsenal will qualify for the last eight stage of the Champions League. A 1-0 home defeat against Barcelona would have been difficult enough but a 2-0 reverse means their assignment at the Nou Camp is the tallest of orders.
The Gunners are 25/1 with bet365 to go through at the expense of Barca, with Arsene Wenger likely to field a strong team for this second leg and you can get 12/1 (BetVictor) that the London side manage a victory on the night.
Even so, a win for Barcelona is a much likelier prospect and Paddy Power offer 2/7 that the Catalan side are celebrating yet another home win, while Ladbrokes dangle a tempting 8/11 that Barca lead at half-time and full-time.
Luis Enrique’s side won without conceding at the Emirates and a Barcelona win to nil is on offer at 5/4 (Sky Bet), with a crushing 4-0 scoreline chalked up at 12/1 (BetVictor) should you think that the MSN will wipe the floor with their opponents.
Bayern Munich were in cruise control at the Juventus Stadium when leading 2-0 although a spirited comeback from the Turin side has kept their Champions League hopes alive.
Juve are a 7/1 chance to win on Wednesday night at the Allianz Arena, although they were largely outplayed by Bayern in the first leg and the smart money has to be on Pep Guardiola’s side going through in this one.
Munich are a 4/9 poke with William Hill and the same company offer 1/5 that Bayern go through to the last eight stage, with the bookies making the Bavarian side second favourite on the outright market.
With Bayern still missing key personnel in defence, it’s all about backing a Munchen win and both teams scoring, something that has been chalked up at 11/5 with bet365.
