Barcelona are closing in on a place in the Champions League quarter-finals after Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez scored a sublime goal to give his side a 2-1 lead against Premier League outfit Arsenal. 

The Catalans took the lead thanks to a goal from Neymar in the first half, but Mohamed Elneny equalised in style with a rocket from outside the box. 

But Suarez, formerly of Liverpool, has well and truly scored the goal of the night with an acrobatic strike.

The enigmatic star met Dani Alves' cross with perfection, striking a sublime volley past Gunners shot-stopper David Ospina, who, unsurprisingly, failed to move.
