Arturo Vidal was handed a thankless task of attempting to help Juventus stop the relentless attacking force that is Barcelona.
Juventus talisman Vidal was thrown off his normal game attempting to help his side keep Barcelona at bay, with his own attacking influence diminished.
It was not a showcase game from an individual perspective for him, despite the occasion being just that, left chasing shadows for Barcelona's opening goal.
The midfielder has been linked with joining Arsenal this summer, with The Telegraph reporting that his agent, also Alexis Sanchez's, has held talks with the Gunner over a move for his client.
Vidal's future will no doubt be one of this summer's hot topics, but he also has a Copa America tournament to focus on in his homeland later this month.
His display against Barcelona in Berlin did not enhance his reputation, but his tough tackling in midfield still underlined what he would bring to the Premier League.
Arsenal fans reacted with divided opinions on his performance in light of the current rumours. Here is a look at what they had to say via Twitter...

Vidal didn't have his best game, but you cannot doubt his ability/mentality. Absolute warrior, would thrive in the PL #AFC— Gavin Bath (@Gavin_Bath) June 6, 2015
Vidal is having a shocker, lucky he's not off yet tbh, maybe Kondogbia is a better option if he's like this on a regular basis #AFC— Patrick Timmons (@PatrickTimmons1) June 6, 2015

Can't wait for Vidal to be in an Arsenal jersey next season— Λlex Shinsky (@Alex_Shinsky) June 6, 2015
I'd still love to have Vidal at Arsenal. Terrific player! People underestimated the task of protecting a back 4 from Messi, Suarez & Neymar.— Tijan (@ThisIsTijan) June 6, 2015
