Watch: Suarez, Neymar combine to put Arsenal on brink of UCL exit

Wednesday March 16th, 2016

Arsenal needed a perfect game at Camp Nou to entertain thoughts of a shock Champions League comeback in Barcelona, and after 18 minutes, that plan fell by the wayside.

Neymar opened the scoring in the second leg of the round-of-16 series, finishing after a feed from Luis Suarez to beat David Ospina and give Barcelona a commanding 3-0 aggregate lead.

Moments after Ospina had brilliantly denied Lionel Messi from scoring from close range, Barcelona was on the attack again. Suarez fed Neymar down the left channel, and his simple finish put Arsenal in a position where it needs three goals to go through while keeping Barcelona scoreless for the remainder of the match.

With an ouster, Arsenal would fall in the round of 16 for the sixth straight season.
