Arsenal vs. Barcelona– UEFA Champions League Match.
Final Score: Arsenal 2- Barcelona 1
The Arsenal Gunners, of London, England, were true comeback kids today in their match against the best team in the world, Barcelona. The match was held at Arsenal’s home field, Emirates Stadium. As a diehard Arsenal fan, I’m still exhilarated over today’s phenomenal win. This was Arsenal’s first win over Barcelona in club history, and a fantastic one at that, I might add. Brilliant soccer was played on both ends of the pitch, and although results looked promising for Barcelona heading into the second half, the Gunners proved their resilience and battled back. I’m so proud to be wearing my Arsenal scarf tonight!! If you missed the game check out some great highlight clips. Check back into this section for more updates on games.
