Round of 16 matches of the Champions League were held tonight (Tuesday) when Arsenal hosted Porto in the Emirates after a 1:0 deficit from the first game, and did the job only at the end of a penalty shootout, with 0:1 at the end of legal time and 2:4 in the battle from the penalty spot.

The game opened with complete control by the Gunners, who had great opportunities for Ben White, Bokayo Saka, and Martin Odgor, while on the other hand Evnielson was close to giving the advantage to the Portuguese, but in the 41st minute the pressure of the team from London paid off when Odgor put a great deep ball into Leandro Trosar in the box, And the Belgian easily rolled in the goal that sealed the result of the half.

In the second half, the Gunners did not take their foot off the gas, and threatened the goal when Saka, Odgor and Reyes came up with good opportunities, and even Gabriel Jesus who came on as a substitute was close to doubling the advantage with his first touch of the ball, but the net did not move at the end of 90 minutes and the game continued to overtime.

The overtime started comfortably, when both teams tried to sting their opponent, but the pace calmed down, and at the end of the overtime we went to a penalty shootout. Odgor, Habertz, Saka and Reyes did the job, when David Raya provided two great saves to Wendel and Galno, and sent the Gunners to the quarter-finals of the Champions League after a great thriller!

Excluding the first match between the two in the Champions League, Arsenal is in a great period with eight consecutive league victories, stands at the top of the Premier League table on equal points with Liverpool, and met expectations in the European factory as well and advanced to the quarter-finals.

Now the team from London would like to continue their tremendous ability in the next round of the English league in the direct battle for the title when they host Manchester City for a promising game (the game against Chelsea that was supposed to take place this week was postponed) and register another victory.

The team from Portugal, on the other hand, also came to the game in great shape with six consecutive games without loss in all formats (five wins and a draw), standing in third place in the Portuguese league, and will now try to concentrate mainly on the local factory, when they host Wisla in the next round.
