Arsenal are heading towards another exit in the Round of 16 in over six years.
New Delhi: La Liga champions Barcelona host English Premier League giants Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16, first leg tie at the Nou Camp in Barcelona.
Barcelona have almost put one foot in the quarter-final tie after steering away to a 2-0 victory against Arsenal in the first leg at the Emirates in London a fortnight ago.
Arsenal are heading towards another exit in the Round of 16 in over six years, and for progression a miracle is required in Spain tonight. Arsene Wenger's side have never managed to progress into the next round at the expense of Barcelona, having faced them eight times, winning only once and losing five.
Barcelona had overcome Arsenal at the same stage last time they met in 2011, and also beat them twice earlier in 1999 (Group Stage) and 2010 (Quarters) respectively.
Arsenal come from an exit at the hands of Watford in the FA Cup quarter-finals and could see their progression end here too.
