The Arsenal Loss to Porto in UCL shocks fans

Arsenal fell into the trap of a deadly defeat against Portugal’s Porto in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals on Wednesday evening at the Dragao Stadium with a clean goal in the 94th minute by Brazilian Winderson Galeno, from a wonderful shot, which the Arsenal goalkeeper failed to save.

The game witnessed great caution from both teams for fear of receiving a defeat that would end the ambitions of the losing team, especially in an important competition such as the Champions League, and the Gunners possessed the ball for most of the game but did not pose a danger to the home side, who took advantage of the mental decline of the English team to score a deadly goal that may make it difficult to return in the second leg, which will be held on Tuesday, 12 March, at the Emirates Stadium, the Gunners’ stronghold.

Arsenal had qualified from the group stage as top of Group B at the expense of Dutch side PSV Eindhoven with 13 points after four wins, one draw and one defeat. Porto, on the other hand, qualified as runners-up in Group E, which was topped by Barcelona, as the Portuguese team achieved 12 points from 4 wins and 2 defeats.

Arsenal Loss to Porto in UCL comes ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash with Newcastle, where Mikel Arteta’s men will be looking to get back to winning ways.
