Arsenal kept alive their European dream after coming from 2-0 down to draw the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Barcelona at Emirates Stadium.

The Spaniards lived up to their billing as favourites following a blistering start and a second-half double from Zlatan Ibrahimovic looked to have all but killed off the tie.

However, Theo Walcott came off the bench to pull a goal back before captain Cesc Fabregas - who will miss the second leg at his old club after being booked - smashed in a late penalty when Carles Puyol had been sent off.
