Arsene Wenger uncharacteristically tore into his ‘naive’ Arsenal squad for handing the advantage to Barcelona going into the side’s second-leg clash at the Camp Nou.
The Gunners matched Luis Enrique’s side for 70 minutes but, as their attention switched from a draw to a win, Wenger’s side were caught on the counter-attack by Luis Suarez, Neymar and Lionel Messi.
The Argentine scored his second of the night when he converted a penalty given away by Mathieu Flamini in the dying minutes.
And Wenger, who is normally reserved in his criticism of his own side, couldn’t hold back in his post-match press conference and compared the game to the side’s last-16 clash with Monaco last season.
