Arsenal awaits Champions League quarter-final opponents.

In a dramatic penalty shootout victory on Tuesday night, Arsenal secured their place in the Champions League quarter-finals!

Following a 1-0 first-leg deficit to FC Porto, Leandro Trossard’s first-half goal in the return leg brought the Gunners level on aggregate. 

Unable to find a winner in extra time, the tie went to penalties, where David Raya’s heroics with two saves sealed a 4-2 shootout victory.

The excitement continues as Arsenal now await their quarter-final opponents in Friday’s draw.

Premier League rivals Manchester City are a potential foe, along with European giants like Real Madrid, Barcelona (depending on their second leg against Atletico Madrid), Bayern Munich, and Paris Saint-Germain.

The first legs of the quarter-finals will be played on April 9th and 10th, with the return legs following a week later on April 16th and 17th.
