Messi Ends Barren Run Against Cech, As Barca Humble Arsenal 0-2 At The Emirates

Lionel Messi’s barren run against Petr Cech came to an expected end on Tuesday night, during the first leg of the round of 16 fixture of the UEFA Champions league, between Arsenal and Barcelona. The diminutive Argentine finished off a swift Barcelona counter attacking move in the 71st minute, to break the stalemate.He scored the second goal of the night from the spot on the 83rd minute after Flamini-an 82nd minute substitute—had fouled him

Arsenal had impressively held their ground against Barca all through the first half and the early second half, before Messi broke the deadlock.Several chances came Arsenal’s ways, but the players fluffed them. In the end, they were made to pay for those missed chances, and for finally giving away ground.

In the other game of the round of 16 played on the same night, Juventus rallied round to come from behind and earn a 2-2 draw at home with Bayern Munich.Juve had earlier gone 2-0 down to goals from Thomas Muller and Arjen Robben, before Dybala and Sturaro equalized. The draw means that Juventus now have a fighting chance in the second leg of the tie.
