Arsenal and Barcelona meet on Tuesday at Emirates Stadium in the Champions League’s round of 16. 

Barcelona, 10 years removed from a Champions League final victory over Arsenal, has defeated the Gunners over two legs the last two times the squads have faced off in the knockout stage.

The two teams met during the 2010–11 Champions League knockout stage, with Arsenal grabbing a 2–1 home victory before Barcelona rallied to advance on aggregate. Barcelona is looking to win a second consecutive Champions League title after beating Juventus in last year's final. 

While Barcelona cruised through this season's Champions League group stage, Arsenal secured a place in the knockout stage on the final day of group stage fixtures.

Domestically, Barcelona has an eight–point lead over Atletico Madrid on top of the La Liga table, while Arsenal is in third in the Premier League, two points behind Leicester City.
