Arsene Wenger believes Barcelona are the best team in the world but manager Pep Guardiola says his players could be “chasing shadows” if they are not at their best against the Gunners tonight.
The Catalan giants are favourites to win the Champions League and Wenger was quick to concede his side would be underdogs against a team he says are setting the standard in club football.
“With Arsenal if you are not well prepared you will be chasing shadows,” said Guardiola.
“I like to watch Arsenal play football but I don’t like to play against them. Of course I have worries about the game that Arsene Wenger plays.”
