Gary Lineker claims Arsenal have their work cut out against Barcelona despite their 2-1 triumph.

Lineker describes Barcelona as "the greatest club side we will ever see" and fears for Arsenal in the second leg of the Champions League first knockout stage at the Nou Camp.

Speaking at the UEFA Champions League final ticket launch in London, Lineker said: "There have been some incredible results, and great results of course for the two north London sides. I love watching Barcelona and I honestly think they could well be the greatest club side we will ever see."

Asked if that put Arsenal's victory at the Emirates into context, Lineker added: "Very much so, but it's only half-time and I still think Arsenal have their work cut out because Barcelona are something else, not only the way they play their football but the way they work so hard.

"They have so many wonderfully gifted players.

"They have got to go on and win two or three Champions Leagues before we can really put them as the best side ever but I think they could conceivably do that."
