Arsenal fans were left purring over Marco Asensio's brilliant cameo for Real Madrid on Wednesday.
The reigning European champions kept alive their hopes of a third successive title by beating Paris Saint-Germain 3-1 at the Bernabeu in the first leg of their last-16 encounter.
For so long it looked set to end 1-1 after Cristiano Ronaldo's first-half penalty cancelled out Adrien Rabiot's opener, but Asensio, a one-time Arsenal target, was introduced on 80 minutes in what proved an inspired substitution by Zinedine Zidane.
The 22-year-old midfielder made an instant impact, playing a role in Ronaldo's second of the night on 83 minutes, before directly setting up Marcelo for a third late on.
And fans of the North London club are desperate to see Arsene Wenger rekindle an interest this summer.
