Arsenal 1-0 Porto (AET, 4-2 pens)

We booked a spot in the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in 14 years thanks to a penalty shootout win against Porto, with David Raya saving the crucial kick to send us through.

We had cancelled out Porto’s first-leg advantage on 40 minutes when Leandro Trossard found the net, and after the break we thought we had gone in front but Martin Odegaard had a goal controversially disallowed for a foul in the build-up.

Extra-time couldn’t separate the sides and so we went to spot-kicks. We netted all four of our kicks, and Porto struck a post before Raya came up big to win the shootout.
