"The goal they got was a little bit funny because we gave them the ball and he made a great finish," said the Danish international, who put Arsenal ahead after 18 minutes. "Then they scored again and again and it's difficult to be behind at the Nou Camp." Of his team's tormentor in chief, Bendtner added: "He's a phenomenal player and he showed that again tonight."
