CL: Pedro promising Arsenal a hot reception

Pedro Rodriguez has warned Arsenal FC that FC Barcelona will “not let them draw breath” when the two sides resume their round of 16 contest at the Camp Nou on Tuesday night, uefa.com informs.

“I know that that first match was a great one for the neutral fans to enjoy, but it drives us mad to lose games like that”,” Pedro told uefa.com.

“You don’t come away thinking the match was good with an intense rhythm and loads of chances. You just think ‘we lost’ and you feel a burning desire to take the next opportunity, to get a better result and to reach the next round.”

That view is shared by many around the Camp Nou and the Azulgrana feel they are unfortunate to be behind in the tie to opponents often likened to them for their similar attacking play.

Shakhtar Donetsk, coached by Romanian Mircea Lucescu, will meet at home, also on Tuesday night, AS Roma.
