Last night Barcelona and Arsenal played their return match in the Champions League second round. As an Arsenal fan I posted the images from the first match, won 2-1 by Arsenal. I thought it only fair to post images from this game, won 3-1 by Barcelona. Barcelona were clearly the better team going forward. Arsenal had dug in, keep the space between the lines very tight and we’re doing a good job of containing Barcelona’s attacking force. Some bad luck, silly mistakes, a childish referee and a very good Barcelona team meant the end of Arsenal in Europe for another year. Well done Barca.
