Nicklas Bendtner believes Arsenal have the talent to dump Barcelona out of the UEFA Champions League.
The Gunners go head-to-head with the Spanish giants when European action resumes this week with the first leg of their last-16 showdown taking place at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday evening.
Pep Guardiola's star-studded outfit saw off the Premier League side in the competition last term, drawing 2-2 in North London before cruising to a 4-1 success at Camp Nou in their quarter-final meeting.
Barca are favourites to progress once again, but Danish striker Bendtner believes that if Arsenal play to their full potential they can be a match for any side.
Pure football skill
"We have to fancy our chances this time because we can beat anyone on our day. We have shown that," Bendtner said.
"I would like to think we are one of the few teams that can match Barcelona for pure football skill, but you have to give a lot of credit to them for the way they are always so positive.
"We know they are magnificent, an unbelievable team, but we have great players as well - and the way we play is very similar to them. We pass the ball like them so we must have a chance.
"There are two or three players in our team who would have a chance of getting into the Barcelona side, I feel sure about that, and all the lads are fired up to make sure we play to our potential. If we do that we have a chance, especially at the Emirates."
Striker Bendtner found the net away to Barca last term, but his effort was a mere consolation as the magical Lionel Messi struck four times for the hosts, including a first-half hat-trick.
And the Gunners man knows Arsene Wenger's side cannot simply focus on stopping the Argentina international, such is the wealth of talent on show in the Catalan club's squad.
He added: "Messi is the best player in the world - he scores all the time and no one can match him.
"But they have so many great players and, when you go through their team, there is not one player who you would say is not world class so we know it is going to be a really tough game.
"You see how they play and it is a pure joy all the time. They are on a great run and it's going to be a massive game. But the key thing this time is that we will hopefully have a more or less full squad.
"Any team needs their best players against a side as good as Barcelona and we are no different. This time I can promise it will be a different game - it was pleasing to score in the Nou Camp last time but I want the feeling of scoring and winning."
