In a thrilling game at the Emirates stadium Arsenal battled back  from 2-0 down to draw 2-2- with Barcelona in the Champions League quarter final,  thanks in no small part to Theo Walcott who grabbed their first soon after comming on as a second half substitute.

In a game for the neutral fan to savour Barcelona dominated the first half with a great display of passing football and only some great goal keeping allowed Arsenal to go in level at half time. However Barcelona scored just after the start of the second half through Ibrahimovic and he added a second just before the hour mark.

Things looked bleak for Arsenal but in the 69th Minute Walcott pulled a goal back whicg gave the team a lift and when Puyol fouled Fabregas 5 minutes from time Arsenal scored the equaliser giving them a chance of progressing to the semi finals. Unfortunately both Fabregas and Puyol will miss the second leg as they are suspended after picking up cards.
