Arsenal almost got a surprise present from Luis Suarez after the Barcelona forward left his passport at home before his team’s flight to London, the BBC reports.
Whether it was forgetfulness or subconscious nerves, unfortunately for Gunners fans, someone from the club was sent back to the Uruguayan’s home to pick it up and he caught the flight with the rest of his team-mates.
The striker has been training in preparation for Barcelona’s Champions League last-16 first leg match at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.
Barca forwards Lionel Messi, Suarez and Neymar have scored 91 goals between them this season – Suarez has scored 41 of them.
The return leg is at the Nou Camp on 16 March.
