Arsenal (England), which returned to the UEFA Champions League (UCL) for the first time in seven years, succeeded in advancing to the quarterfinals for the first time in 14 years.

In the second leg of the 2023-24 UEFA Champions League round of 16 at Emirates Stadium in London on the 13th (Korea time), FC Porto (Portugal) was defeated 4-2 after a penalty shootout.

Arsenal, which lost 0-1 in the first leg at Porto’s home, finished the game with a penalty shootout after matching the combined score of the first and second games 1-0 to 1-1.

Arsenal scored the opening goal in the 40th minute of the first half. Leandro Trossard took a through pass from Martin 외degaard in the back of the defense and finished with a right-footed shot. The score was 1-1 overall in the first and second matches.

The game went to a penalty shootout as both teams failed to score points in overtime.

In the midst of a wave of offensives, Arsenal turned the game upside down with Odegaard’s goal in the 21st minute of the second half. However, the VAR review found that Odegaard’s goal was cancelled due to foul play on the Arsenal side before the ball was caught.

Victory or defeat was determined in the penalty shootout. Odegaard, who was the first kicker at Arsenal, succeeded and Pepe (No. 11) tied the score 1-1 in Porto. 퀸알바
