David Ospina

The Colombian will feel aggrieved that Arsenal were not facing Real Madrid in the Champions League last night.

Last night saw Juventus take an early lead in the Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid. Goals from Alvaro Morata and Carlos Tevez led them to victory, despite a headed close-range finish from Cristiano Ronaldo in between. The result means Juventus take a one-goal lead to Madrid for the second leg.

Of course it is a game that Arsenal fans must have watched with envy. The Gunners were eliminated by AS Monaco, who went on to be seen out of the competition by the Italian champions.

Arsenal would have fancied their chances against Juve and will likely think their side should have been facing Real last night.

One Arsenal player who was in fact watching the game was David Ospina.

The Colombian goalkeeper was watching the game with his family, and shred that with his Twitter followers.

While Ospina probably enjoyed the fantastic game on show, he would certainly have preferred to have been in action himself at the Juventus Stadium in Turin.

For now Arsenal will have to watch Juventus take on the task they would have fancied themselves in pursuit of Champions League glory.
