Current performance of FC Arsenal - Accordingly to the goalless match against Hull City last Saturday, the self-confidence of Arsenal may have suffered a little bit. This also can have an effect on their next match against Barcelona. However FC Arsenal is playing very well this season, after 26 days of plays the team takes the third place in the championship. With a two-point margin to the leading team Leicester they still have all chances to come off as a winner. Off course Arsenal also wants to be as successful as possible in the Champions League, even when this wasn’t the case in the last years. They could cope with the group stage but then the contest ended very quickly for them, like last year against the AS Monaco in the eighth final.

The players of Arsenal have to fight really hard on Tuesday to stand up to Barcelona.

Current performance of FC Barcelona - The current situation of the FC Barcelona is way better than the one from Arsenal. But they didn’t show their best side at the match against the relegation battler Las Palmas. With a close result of 2:1 Barcelona has won the match, with the help of Neymar and Luis Suarez who scored the goals in this match. But this bad performance from Barcelona was just an exceptional case because with a clear margin of nine points to their arch-enemy Real Madrid they have good chances in the championship. They also won the last eight Champions League games and became a clearly favourite for this upcoming match against Arsenal. So when Messi, Neymar & Co. will play this Tuesday there will be no worries for the rematch in front of their own audience.
