Arsenal's Ainsley Maitland-Niles Scores Hilarious Own Goal Versus Barcelona

Ainsley Maitland-Niles inadvertently scored a hilarious own goal as Barcelona beat Arsenal 2-1 in a pre-season friendly.

The Arsenal right-back accidentally poked the ball into his own net after a ricochet from Luis Suarez.

He was in no danger as he prodded the ball past the on-rushing Bernd Leno in a comedic moment as Barcelona drew level.

He won't want to see that again.

Needless to say, his own goal was the talk of social media. Here's some reaction from Twitter:

Luis Suarez then scored a 90th minute winner to secure the 2019 Joan Gamper Trophy.

Meanwhile, Arsenal open their Premier League campaign away at Newcastle United on August 11.
