UCL: Porto edge Arsenal with stoppage time winner

Arsenal suffered a late 1-0 defeat to Porto in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

Arterta’s men had been underwhelming throughout the game failing to get even a shot on target and thought they had gotten off with a draw, but Wenderson Galeno curled home a superb strike to break the deadlock right at the nick of time.

Arsenal are looking to scale through to the UCL quarter-finals for the first time since 2009-10 and could get the chance to redeem themselves when they host the Portuguese side for the return leg at the Emirates on March 12, 2024. 


In the other game of the night, Napoli held Barcelona to a 1-1 draw. Second-half goals from Lewandowski and Osimhen means both sides have all to play for on the return leg at Nou Camp.
