Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola: Beating Arsenal in the Champions League 'will not be easy'
Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has admitted that he's expecting a tough tie when the La Liga champions take on Arsenal in the Champions League last 16.

Guardiola's side knocked the Gunners out of the competition last season although the Spaniard knows the task of advancing past Arsene Wenger's side will not be easy.

"The defeat against Betis will help us to grow, in about three weeks we play Arsenal, and this will not be easy. But in spite of this, I remain positive for the second half of the season," he said after Barcelona's 3-1 second leg defeat to Real Betis in the Copa del Rey.

The story is too old to be commented.

Will be a tough game indeed. Can't wait to see this game. I really like both teams so I don't know who to root for

As long as all the starters are fit Arsenal can give a tough fight to any team. Also as long as Arsenal doesn't try to defend it will be the best/most entertaining match of the season.
