The UEFA Champions League final is generally the most highly-anticipated match of the year (at least in non-World Cup years), but a close second this year could be today's Barcelona-Arsenal UEFA Champions League clash.
Barcelona is widely-regarded as the best team in the world, but a 2-1 loss in the first leg in London has Arsenal on the verge of a major Round of 16 upset, though there is hard work to be done. For Barcelona, the task is simple. Win 1-0 or by multiple goals and the Spanish champions can continue searching for a second European title in three seasons. If Arsenal wins, draws or loses by a goal while scoring multiple goals, then the Gunners will be one step closer to their first Champions League trophy.
Seems like an easy call? Don't bet on it. Barcelona will enter today's match without first-choice centerbacks Gerard Pique (suspended) and Carles Puyol (injured), which is great news for an Arsenal side that looks set to play stars Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie, who both had been believed to be injured and out of today's match.
Here's our question for you: Who do you see winning today? Think Arsenal's counterattack will burn Barcelona's patchwork defense, or do you see Lionel Messi and Co. stepping up to deliver a clutch victory?
