Barcelona and Shakhtar qualifies to quarter finals

Arsenal’s Dutch striker Robin van Persie described his sending-off against Barcelona as “a total joke” after his team’s 3-1 defeat ended their hopes of a place in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Van Persie, declared fit for the game only earlier on Tuesday, was shown a second yellow card by experienced Swiss referee Massimo Busacca in the 56th minute when he took a shot at goal after being flagged for offside.


in the second game, Shakhtar Donetsk continue to make club history after they dumped Roma out of the Champions League with a convincing 3-0 victory in Ukraine to reach the quarter finals of the competition for the first time.

Tomas Hubschman, Willian and substitute Eduardo were on the scoresheet at the Donbass Arena to seal a well deserved 6-2 aggregate victory and maintain a remarkable unbeaten home record stretching back to 2009.
