Arsenal conceded a late goal against Paris Saint-Germain to draw 2-2, a result which could have negative implications for their season.

The Gunners are now second in their group with one game left, and with PSG set to face Ludogorets at home, there is little chance of them relinquishing first place.

PSG's second goal was scored from a Lucas Moura header which took a deflection of Alex Iwobi, with Hatem Ben Arfa putting in the assist.

BT Sport pundit Michael Owen had his say on the equaliser, speaking to the channel's post-match coverage.

He picked out Carl Jenkinson and Alex Iwobi's poor defending, stating: "Jenkinson could get closer [to Moura], he's had a long time to get across.

"Iwobi should leave it. It's a farcical goal. You wouldn't expect them [Arsenal] to concede such a soft goal."

Arsenal's chances of going deep into the competition now face a similar fate to the past few seasons, as second placed qualifiers they would face a first placed team, potentially Barcelona or Bayern Munich.

Owen also said he has his doubts over whether Arsenal can see off a top quality team, stating that results this season speak for themselves.

He commented: "They consistently do this, they struggle against the best teams most of time.

"Look at the results. They beat Basel and Ludogorets, and two draws against a top team. They might just be short of top class at the moment."
