thumbnail Hello,

A look forward to Tuesday night's rematch


A rematch to be savoured at the Nou Camp. In the first leg Arsenal upset the form book to score two late goals and take a 2-1 advantage to Barcelona.

Last year the Gunners took an early lead only for Lionel Messi to massacre the Premier League side. His four-goal haul earned him a perfect 10 from Goal.com and ruined Arsenal's dreams in Europe for another season.

Who will be the match winners on Tuesday night? We take a look at the contenders.

Lionel Messi
To Score First @ 3.25
To Score anytime @ 1.50
To Score In Both Halves @ 3.40
To Score in Barca win @ 1.66   


Only he will know how he failed to score at the Emirates in the first game. By his incredibly high standards it was a rare miss and we all remember what he did in the identical fixture a year ago. Messi is 2.87 to score two, 9.0 to get three or more and a shorter 1.66 to score in a Barcelona win.

Nicklas Bendtner
To Score First @ 13.0   
To Score anytime @ 5.20
To Score in Arsenal win @ 8.0


Often forgotten in the midst of the Messi show a year ago was that the Danish striker opened the scoring. Arsene Wenger has indicated his team has matured over the past year and Bendtner could be handed an opportunity if Robin van Persie is unable to play. You can back RVP @ 3.75 to score in the 90 minutes.

David Villa
To Score First @ 3.75   
To Score anytime @ 1.66
To Score in Barca win @ 1.83 
   

Took his chance at the Emirates and will punish the best of defences. Lots of attention will be on Messi but ignore Villa at your peril and at 1.66 is reasonable value. You can get Villa at 1.83 to score in a Barcelona win.

Andrey Arshavin
To Score First @ 17.0   
To Score anytime @ 6.50
To Score in Arsenal win @ 19.0


Once touted as a Barcelona player, the talented Russian came off the bench to score the winner against Barca in the first leg. Expected to start this evening, the hero of the Emirates is a good price to score again.

Pedro

To Score First @ 4.50   
To Score anytime @ 1.90
To Score in Barca win @ 2.90


Rarely at the top of the goalscoring odds but no punter should ignore Pedro's ability in the final third. Thirteen goals in 27 La Liga games is testament to his skill. A price of 2.90 for Pedro to score in a Barca win looks inviting.

Cesc Fabregas

To Score First @ 17.0    
To Score anytime @ 6.50
To Score in Arsenal win @ 51.0


Passed fit for this evening's showdown, the long term Barcelona target will be pivotal to his side's chances of reaching the quarter-finals. A small stake on the Arsenal captain to score in an away win at 51.0 could be worth a punt.
