UCL: Barcelona see off Arsenal, Bayern beat Juvetus

Barcelona booked their spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League courtesy of a 3-1 victory over Arsenal at Camp Nou on Wednesday night.

The Spanish giants entered the second leg of the last-16 tie as the firm favourites to progress following a 2-0 win in London last month and the reigning champions finished the job in front of their own supporters.

Attacking trident Neymar, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi were all on the scoresheet for Barcelona, who have extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to 38 matches.

Thiago Alcantara and Kingsley Coman kept Pep Guardiola’s hopes of winning the Champions League with Bayern Munich alive after scoring in extra time to beat Juventus 4-2 (6-4 on aggregate) and book their place in the quarter-finals on Wednesday night.

Juventus sent shockwaves in Munich when Paul Pogba gave the Italians the lead in the sixth minute, and the hosts were stunned further when Juan Cuadrado added a second to the scoreline before the half-hour mark.

Robert Lewandowski gave Bayern hope when he converted a header in the 73rd minute, and after piling on the pressure in the final stages of the game, the German champions sent the match into extra time thanks to a 91st-minute header from Thomas Muller.
