Arsenal UCL Odds Drift – the Gunners are out to 41.00 to win this season’s Champions League after they were drawn with mighty Barcelona reports FC Bodog.
Before the draw the north London club was trading at 17.00 odds but a fixture against the tournament favourites means that Arsene Wenger’s men are over double that price.
Barcelona are chalked up at 3.25 odds – before they were paired with Arsenal they were available to back at 3.50.
Can Arsenal deal with the might of Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar? You can get Arsenal UCL odds of 4.50 that they win the first leg with Barcelona trading at 1.83.
The Barcelona v Arsenal fixture will throw up memories of the 2006 final Champions League final in Paris that the Catalan side won 2-1.
Interestingly, Arsenal are believed to be tracking Barcelona’s Alex Grimaldo. The left-sided defender has played for Spain at under-21 level but is struggling to force his way into Luis Enrique’s first team plans.
Another mouth-watering tie sees Juventus versus Bayern Munich. Bayern are trading at 3.80 odds to win the 2016 UCL with last year’s finalists Juventus available at 34.00 odds.
Meanwhile, former Arsenal and current Barcelona defender Thomas Vermaelen thinks the Gunners can win the Premier League title.
When asked if Arsenal have what it takes he said: “Definitely, he has done it before. He has a winning mentality, he wants to win, and of course he has the character to win the title.
“I’ve been watching them and they look very strong. They are missing some important players but if you play so many games that can happen.
“It’s difficult to predict in England who is going to be the champions but if you look at the results Arsenal are always up there and I hope the injured players come back.
“I hope they can do it. I think it’s important to stay injury free but if the players are available they’re definitely up there and I can see them winning it.”
The 30-year-old is likely to face his old club at the Emirates and the Nou Camp.
