Former Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov rolled back the years to score as Monaco pulled off a memorable 3-1 victory over Arsenal in their Champions League last-16, first-leg match on Wednesday.

The 34-year-old, who played for Spurs from 2006-08, struck the French side’s second goal as the visitors made it an extremely unhappy reunion for former coach Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

Some home fans made their disapproval known at the final whistle, booing the side off the park.

The Gunners face a huge challenge when they travel to Monaco next month if they are to reach the last eight for the first time since 2010.

The night’s other match was an ill-tempered affair.

German side Bayer Leverkusen gave themselves a glimmer of hope of reaching the quarter-finals for the first time as they beat last season’s finalists Atletico Madrid 1-0.

Hakan Calhanoglu scored the only goal and become the first player to score against Atletico in the Champions League since Kostas Mitroglou did for Olympiakos on September 16.

The visitors ended the game with 10 men when Tiago was sent off for a second bookable offence.
