Barcelona showed Arsenal why they are rated as the best team in the world with a masterclass performance at the Emirates.
Lionel Messi was claimed to be jinxed against Petr Cech who he had not scored against in his previous six meetings but it was seven times lucky for the for the current World Player of the Year as he not only broke the jinx but netted twice in the Champions League round of 16, first leg match.
Arsenal were underdogs going into the game but came out with determination and nearly took the lead on different occasions, however they paid for their poor finishing as a lightening counter-attack from the MSN( Messi, Suarez, and Neymar) dis-harmed the Gunners.
An inter-change between Suarez and Neymar released the magical Argentine who took his time before placing the ball past the helpless Cech who was already on the floor even before the ball was kicked. Messi added his second to continue an amazing season. Here are stats of the MSN scoring form since Luis Sarez joined the Catalan giants.
