Barcelona leaves Arsenal behind….

Neymar celebrates his opener for Barcelona

Arsenal’s Champions League hopes were extinguished as goals from Neymar, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi sent the Gunners to a 3-1 defeat at the Nou Camp on Wednesday night. It was a bit too little, too late for the Gunners who mostly played well in the round of 16 second leg tie, but were outdone by Barca’s potent attacking trio to lose 5-1 on aggregate. The Catalans added to their 2-0 first leg advantage with a simple first half strike by Neymar, before Mohamed Elneny scored his first Arsenal goal to give the visitors a glimmer of hope. But Suarez struck a stunning volley with 25 minutes to play, before Messi added the third of the evening late on to see Barcelona into the quarter-finals.
