Barcelona come into the game with a 0-2 advantage after they outplayed Arsene Wenger's team in the first leg that was played at the Emirates in North London.
This was the first time Arsenal have lost to Barcelona at the stadium, with Barcelona winning 3 of the last 5 games against Arsenal with just 1 win for Wenger's squad.

Barcelona's Best Odds: 1/4
If your'e backing bookmakers favourites Barcelona, head to Coral.co.uk as they offer the best odds on a home win at 1/4.
It would be a massive upset for Barcelona to lose this game as they haven’t been beaten at the Nou Camp in over a year, and are having a sensational run in Europe.
They’ve made it through to knockout stages of the Champions League for their 12th consecutive campaign, having won the Champions League in 4 of the last 10 seasons.
That success would mean that Barcelona would become the first team since AC Milan to win back-to-back European Cup/Champions League titles.
Barcelona have been victorious in their last 3 Champions League knockout encounters against Arsenal, and based on their current form, it’s easy to see why they’re expected to win.
Enrique’s squad hasn’t lost in 37 games, and are only 1 of the 2 clubs still unbeaten in the Champions League this season. Even with Gerard Pique missing on suspension, this shouldn’t prove too difficult of a win for Barcelona.
Arsenal's Best Odds: 12/1
If you’re betting on Arsenal defying all odds and beating Barcelona PaddyPower.com offer the best odds on an away win at 12/1.
It’s clear that Arsenal are lacking confidence and form, and are struggling in their defence this season and so it's a big ask to beat one of the best Champions League teams.
Yet again they seem to have buckled under the pressure of their February/March run, having only secured 1 win in their last 7 games in the domestic fixtures.
While they’ve had better luck in away games, winning 5 of their last 6 in all competitions, Wenger’s men face a massive challenge if they hope to beat an on fire Barcelona.
They’ve reached the knockout stages of the Champions League every season since 2003/04, however Arsenal have left the competition at this point in each of the last 5 seasons.
If they can’t pull one out of the bag against Barcelona it looks as if it could happen again, which will only add to their problems and once again question Wenger’s position.
Best Odds On A Draw: 11/2
Although bookmakers offer Barcelona as clear favourites to win, a draw could be a very realistic outcome as 2 of the last 8 games between the sides have been drawn.
If you're betting on Arsenal holding Barcelona to a draw at the Nou Camp, head over to PaddyPower.com as they offer the best odds on the result at 11/2.
