FC BARCELONA WINS 0 - 2 ARSENAL | 1º ST LEG CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Good game & very entertaining with both teams creating plenty of goal chances. Barça stuck to their possession football style while Arsenal was more defensive & played the counter-attack card. Lots of goal chances created with both goalkeepers - Cech & Stegen - having to make a few very important saves each. 

In the end it was the team which was more effective & took the opportunities to create goals. FC Barcelona scored first in the 71st min after a lightening counter-attack involving Neymar-Suarez-Neymar- Messi who scored. The execution was perfect!

The second goal came from a penalty in the 84th min which Messi converted to grab his second in tonight's match.

Another highlight was the post hit by Luis Suarez.

FC Barcelona was tonight the better team, while Arsenal lacked finishing abilities & paid dearly for not defining.
