Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has tried his hand at predicting once again. The much reviled BT Sports pundit had tried his hand at predicting the Premier League before and now he has had his say on tonight’s big Champions League clash between Arsenal ad Barcelona.
The former England international does not believe that it will be all one-way traffic and has backed the Gunners to score at the Emirates, but the Spanish giants to win the match.
“Arsenal have been knocked out of the Champions League at this last 16 stage in the last five seasons and it is hard to see past more CL heartache for the Gunners given the quality of opposition,
The Catalan giants are playing football from a different planet at present and with the big three of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar all in top form it will be difficult for the PL side to keep the La Liga side out in their present form; that said I expect Arsenal to score at the Emirates, just not as many as Barcelona!”
The same website had a footnote which said: “Michael’s recommendation: Barcelona to win and Both Teams To Score at 21/10.”
