Unsurprisingly, it’s Arsenal who feature the most in our Worst Champions League team of the week.

Check out who the unlucky XI are below:

Roman Weidenfeller Borussia Dortmund


GK: Roman Weidenfeller (Borussia Dortmund)

Weidenfeller’s terrible parry on a Juventus cross was one of the key reasons for the Serie A side’s opening goal and eventual 2-1 win.

Pablo Zabaleta Manchester City

RB: Pablo Zabaleta (Manchester City)

A harsh choice, admittedly, but despite his hard word both going forward and defensively he almost undid all of that with a ridiculous challenge in stoppage time that handed Barcelona a penalty and what should have been a 3-1 lead heading to the Camp Nou.

It didn’t matter but it was unimpressive to say the least.

Per Mertesacker Arsenal


CB: Per Mertesacker (Arsenal)

Caught out again and again with his forays forward leaving poor Laurent Koscielny mercilessly exposed.

Has the unfortunate knack of being involved in all three Monaco goals after causing the deflection for the first whilst his total lack of pace and awareness ensured Arsenal were caught on the counter and punished for the second and third.

Vincent Kompany Man City Lionel Messi Barcelona


CB: Vincent Kompany (Manchester City)

Was given a real lesson from Barcelona and Luis Suarez in particular who ran him ragged in the first half. His nadir coming when he effectively played a one-two with the Uruguayan with a deflection to hand the La Liga side the opening goal.

gael clichy red card


LB: Gael Clichy (Manchester City)

May have ruined any chance of a Manchester City fightback in the second left after getting himself recklessly sent off for a silly foul just as the Premier League champions were coming back into it following Segio Aguero’s goal.
