Barcelona vs. Arsenal: Who will win?

After playing an unforgettable first leg, FC Barcelona and Arsenal will do battle today (2:45pm, FSN/FSE/DirecTV) at the Camp Nou for a berth in the UEFA Champions League semifinals.

Barcelona settled for a 2-2 draw in the first leg after initially holding a 2-0 lead in a match it was thoroughly dominating. That was before Arsenal's stirring comeback.

Today's match will be much different, with several key players set to miss the action. Cesc Fabregas, Andrei Arshavin and William Gallas are out for Arsenal, while suspended defenders Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique are out for Barcelona, as are injured stars Andres Iniesta and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Here is our question for you? Who do you see winning the series? Is Barcelona destined to destroy the Gunners, or will the absence of Puyol and Pique leave Barcelona vulnerable?

Cast your vote:

Who is my pick? It's tough to pick against Barcelona at home. They may have a makeshift defense, but they still have Lionel Messi, Xavi and Thierry Henry.
