BREAKING: “Barcelona Will Have Problems Playing Against Arsenal”

Barcelona will face a stern test against Arsenal in the round of 16 of the UEFA champions league, according to club’s director Albert Soler.
Reacting shortly after the draws, Soler warned Barca’s successes against Arsenal in recent years will have no bearing on this season’s tie.

He said: “Arsenal and Barca have a very similar system of play. I’m convinced the fans will enjoy the football.
“The way we understand football is the same. They will be two great games. 
“As always, we have the utmost respect. I’m sure we’ll have some problems playing against them, so let’s wait and see. 
“There will be 180 minutes of football, we have to play two games and we’ll see where that takes us.
“We hope to have all our players available to ensure the show is a good one.
“Barca are used to playing under pressure, we’re the reigning champions and that gives you pressure and an advantage. 
Barcelona beat Arsenal in the 2009/10 quarter-finals and 2010/11 round of 16, and also the 2006 UEFA Champions League final in Saint-Denis.
