Unfortunately for Ospina and Arsenal, goals from Neymar, Luis Suarez and Messi eventually wrapped up a 3-1 win for the Spanish side at Camp Nou.

However, Arsenal’s first-choice goalkeeper was clearly impressed by Ospina’s display against the Catalan outfit.

Cech tweeted on Wednesday night:

Arsenal now turn their attentions back to the Premier League and their trip to Everton on Saturday lunchtime.

The Gunners currently trail Premier League leaders Leicester City by 11 points.
