Arsenal KNOCK FC Porto out of the UEFA Champions League

Arsenal have knocked FC Porto out of the UEFA Champions League after winning on penalties.

Leandro Trossard scored the only goal of the match in the 41st minute to level the tie but Arsenal couldn’t capitalise on this during normal and extra time.

As the match progressed, the game became a cagey affair and barely any chances were created from both teams.

Arsenal, who are the current Premier League leaders, were left frustrated most of the night thanks to 41 year-old Pepe who put in a super shift at centre-back for FC Porto.

When penalties arrived, Galeno missed the crucial penalty to give Arsenal the victory and help them progress to the quarter-finals.

The victory meant Arsenal have reached the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time since 2010.
