Iniesta compliments Arsenal as one of the best teams on the planet.



 

The two clubs meet at Emirates Stadium for the first leg of their last-16 tie and it is expected to provide an exhilarating encounter.

Both Barcelona and Arsenal are famed for their determination to play attractive, attacking football and they are not expected to abandon their principles.

Barcelona won 6-3 on aggregate in last season's quarter-finals, with a Lionel Messi master class inspiring a second-leg demolition, but Arsenal are thought to have improved.

Iniesta was absent due to injury in the 2009/10 meeting, but he expects a tougher task in the current campaign, as he said: "I couldn't play last year but it was an excellent match here, very interesting and a lot of goals".

"There were some good moments for us, but they put us under a lot of pressure. They are going to try and play a good game again and we need to play really well because this is one of the best teams in the world"

"This tie will be decided in the next match when we return to Barcelona. It is the Champions League, we find ourselves against the best in the world so I don't think anyone will think the tie can be won today.


Who do YOU think is going to win?
