Betting Tip: Luis Suarez - Arsenal vs Barcelona @ 15/4 with bet365

Arsenal have the toughest possible Champions League last sixteen opponents and bet365 offer 4/1 that the Gunners qualify at the expense of the tournament favourites.

A win at the Emirates on Tuesday night is surely vital, with BetVictor going 21/5 about Arsene Wenger’s team and they did beat Bayern Munich at home in the group stage.

Barca could be an altogether different prospect and William Hill dangle 8/11 about the Catalan side claiming a first leg victory, with the prolific Luis Suarez available at 4/1 with Ladbrokes to open the scoring.

Ladbrokes have 9/1 that Alexis Sanchez breaks the deadlock against his former club, although the best bet of the night could be Barcelona to win and both teams to score. That’s been priced up at 11/5 with Hills.

However, we’re happy to stick with Suarez on the First Goalscorer market. While Lionel Messi is the star attraction, it’s worth noting that the Uruguayan has scored 41 goals in 37 matches this season.

Ironically, this is a player that Arsene Wenger tried to sign from Liverpool and the Frenchman is fully aware of Suarez’s capabilities, with Suarez breaking the deadlock against Las Palmas on Saturday.

Let’s not forget that it was the former Liverpool man who scored twice at Manchester City a year ago, with Messi often the provider for a player whose pace can be absolutely frightening.
