Terry Gibson states his prediction for Arsenal v Barcelona

Terry Gibson believes Arsenal will score on Tuesday night but expects Barcelona to win at The Emirates

Terry Gibson believes Barcelona will edge to victory over Arsenal in Tuesday night’s Champions League clash at The Emirates.

The Gunners host the reigning Champions League holders in the first leg of their last-16 clash after a goalless draw with Hull City in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Barcelona edged out Las Palmas in a 2-1 win in La Liga at the weekend to warm up for their European clash with a victory.

Luis Enrique’s side are one of only two teams to avoid defeat in this season’s Champions League group stage, winning two games away from Camp Nou in Europe.

Former Chelsea star Gibson expects Barcelona to secure a first-leg win at the Emirates Stadium.

“Arsenal will cause Barcelona problems and Arsenal can score a goal. I’m going 2-1 Barcelona,” Gibson told Unibet.

The Catalan club are looking to reach the quarter-finals for the ninth consecutive season.

Barcelona won at Manchester City in the round of 16 first leg in each of the previous two campaigns – 2-0 in 2014 and 2-1 in 2015.
