    Wonderful. So much love to Joel Campbell, easily his best game in an Arsenal shirt and now ahead of OxCham for that right-wing spot.

    So now, we'll get Barcelona.

    Possible options: Barcelona, Real Madrid, Wolfsburg, Atletico, Zenit

    They're all tough but if I had to pick one, it would be Wolfsburg.

    Good performance, did what we needed to do with a severely depleted squad. Now onto the last 16 where we'll get knocked out, but still no Europa League football.

    Delighted and a great performance in the end aftee a difficult 20mins. We were always destined to finish 2nd in this group at best so not fussed who we get next round. Just glad we got through in the end and hopefully this helps us push on.

    I dread to think what they'll do to us, we have to believe though even if we have no chance!

    Boring draw. Result at home, then get battered in Barcelona.

    So, this tomorrow.... :hiding

    On a serious note, if I were to break down Barcelona, I'd say they are not as untouchable away from the Nou Camp as they are at it.

    This season, their away record stands at P19 W11 D6 L2 F30 A15 and they kept just 8 clean sheets on their travels. All season, they've kept 18 clean sheets from 44 matches. So they're definitely leaky. The obvious problem is they have BY FAR the best front 3 in world football.

    One thing we mustn't do is make it easy for them to score. A 0-0 would be wonderful, a win even more.

    My prediction is a 2-1 defeat but I wouldn't be surprised if we picked up a result.

    The only thing keeping me going is their average defensive record. We have to take whatever chances we get tonight.

    Rumours are we're going to press high up the pitch and we're unchanged from Leicester.

    Really unsure about a high press, means the defensive line has to push up too. Very risky against Barcelona.

    That's their strongest outfield 10.
