Arsenal

ESPN pundit predicts who’d win if they faced each other now… Arsenal or Real Madrid

Stuart Robson has predicted who would win if they faced each other in the next round of the Champions League – Arsenal or Real Madrid.

The Galacticos booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League yesterday. Arsenal need to overcome a one-goal deficit against Porto to get there. If they do, they could face Real Madrid next.

Stuart Robson says Arsenal will beat Real Madrid
Real Madrid are the biggest club in the world and are also the kings of the Champions League.

The Galacticos have won the competition on 14 occasions – more than any other club in Europe. They are among the favourites to win it again, but Arsenal are dreaming about it too

The Gunners have a squad that’s capable of going toe-to-toe with any club in the world. They may not have the experience, but they definitely have the talent and heart.

After Real Madrid secured a place in the quarter-finals last night, Stuart Robson was asked what would happen if Carlo Ancelotti‘s side faced Arsenal in the next round of the Champions League.

The pundit said on ESPN FC: “The way both teams are playing at the moment, I would say Arsenal would win the tie because, at the moment, Arsenal are difficult to play against.

“If you try and squeeze them high up the field, they play around you. And if you drop deep like Sheffield United did and other teams have done (like) Burnley and sit there and sit deep, they’ve got enough quality in and around the box – they are the best team in and around the box at the moment – they cut you open then.

“So, at the moment, I would see Arsenal winning that game quite comfortably.”

Arsenal vs Real Madrid would be a fascinating watch
Real Madrid haven’t been at their usual best over the last few months, but they are still an incredible side capable of beating any club in the world.

Arsenal, on the other hand, have been on fire. They have the best attack and best defence in the entire Premier League, and it would be very hard for any team to stop them.

The Gunners need to get past Porto before thinking about what’s next, but if they do get there and draw Real Madrid, it would be a magnificent contest.

The Galacticos may well go into the game as the favourites, but Arsenal are more than capable of beating them over two legs, especially in the form they are in right now.
