Arsenal advanced to the Quarter Finals for the first time since 2010


Arsenal advanced to the Champions League quarterfinals for the first time since 2010 by defeating Porto in a penalty shootout after a tense night at Emirates Stadium.


A goal from Leandro Trossard just before halftime levelled the score for the Gunners in the second leg of the last-16 match, thanks to a great setup by captain Martin Odegaard.


No team won even after extra time in a tense and intense match. Arsenal kept their composure and advanced to the quarterfinals.


Arsenal's Odegaard, Kai Havertz, Bukayo Saka, and Declan Rice found the back of the net. At the same time, David Raya made crucial saves to secure victory for Mikel Arteta's team, sparking jubilant celebrations.


Arsenal found themselves behind Galeno's late goal in the first match in Portugal, setting the stage for a challenging test of character, temperament, and patience against Sergio Conceicao's seasoned team.


Porto's defence, led by the experienced 41-year-old Pepe, effectively stifled Arsenal's attacking efforts. Trossard's goal, resulting from skilful footwork and a precise pass from Odegaard, exposed a brief lapse in the visitors' defence.


Arsenal faced a tough challenge from Porto, with Raya making crucial saves from Evanilson and Francisco Conceicao.


Odegaard's second-half goal seemed to calm Arsenal's nerves and secure their spot without needing extra time. However, the play was nullified because Havertz was deemed to have impeded Pepe.


As Porto coach Conceicao was visibly agitated and animated, anxiety and anger were palpable in the technical area. The frustration peaked after their fate was sealed by Raya's flying save in a chaotic conclusion.


After a tense evening, Arsenal emerged victorious as Arteta broke his European home curse by securing a win at Emirates Stadium after five Europa League matches.


The Gunners had finally overcome a psychological hurdle after being eliminated in the last 16 stages in their previous seven Champions League campaigns.


After making it to the quarterfinals, Arsenal may have gained valuable lessons from this challenging experience to progress further in the competition.


Arsenal prepares for an exciting end to the season.


Arsenal is on cloud nine after advancing to the quarterfinals of Europe's top competition and securing the top spot in the Premier League.


After a thrilling victory over Brentford and a draw between their main rivals Liverpool and Manchester City, they now lead the league in terms of goal difference.


Arsenal can now carry their momentum into the season's final stage, competing in domestic and European competitions.


Arsenal's upcoming match is against Premier League champions Manchester City at Etihad Stadium on 31 March.
