Despite on a 32 games unbeaten run, Barcelona forward Luis Suarez insists that the Catalan giants won’t underrate that Arsenal in tonight’s UEFA Champions League match.
The gunners have been previous knockout by the Lionel Messi inspired side at the same stage of the competition but the former Ajax Captain remains wary of Arsene Wenger’s side.
“We are not taking the challenge Arsenal are going to give us lightly,” Suarez told the Daily Express.
“Yes, we are playing well and are confident, but Arsenal deserve a lot of respect and we must be focused in both games. Arsenal look like they have a very good chance of winning the league this season, they are one of the best teams in England.”

Suarez joined Barcelona after the 2014 ahead of Arsenal who were desperate for his services at the time but does not regret snubbing the Gunners for a move to Nou Camp.
“It’s inevitable that people will talk about them trying to sign me, with us facing them in Europe,” he revealed.
“They are a big club, but it would have been very difficult to play for any team other than Liverpool in England.
“Barcelona was the right choice for me. Yes, I have won the treble in my first season, but also my family are very happy in the city. Barcelona was the only choice for me, life is good.”
