The Gunners were on the cusp of taking a respectable goalless draw back to base from the opening leg, only to be undone by an astounding last-minute goal from Galeno.

An uncharacteristically toothless Arsenal departed the Estadio do Dragao without managing a single shot on target, but Mikel Arteta has got the response he was looking for from his troops, who woke up on Sunday sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League table.

Three successive wins over Newcastle United, Sheffield United and Brentford saw the Gunners reclaim their perch for the first time since December, and Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Manchester City means Arsenal are still looking down on the other 19 teams with 10 matches remaining.

Arteta seeks the winning formula which will prevent Arsenal suffering an eighth successive Champions League exit at the last-16 stage, and the Spaniard witnessed his side win all three of their group matches with 12 goals scored and zero conceded during the autumn.

Only once in their past 10 attempts have Arsenal managed to progress in the Champions League after losing the first leg, although that triumph appropriately came against Porto in the 2009-10 campaign, which remains the most recent occasion that the Gunners reached the quarter-finals of Europe’s top competition.

Porto arrive in the English capital on the back of a morale-boosting set of domestic results of their own, including a 5-0 thrashing of reigining Primeira Liga champions Benfica on March 3.

Not since the 2012-13 season, against Malaga, have Port been eliminated from a Champions League last-16 tie after prevailing in the first leg, but history must be written if they are to avoid that unwanted scenario from occuring again.

Sergio Conceicao’s side have failed to win all of their previous 22 matches in England, and their only success against a Premier League team not on home territory came against Chelsea in Seville in 2021.

Arsenal vs. Porto Head to head

In the seven previous meetings between these two teams, they have each claimed three victories while drawing once. Arsenal have scored 12 goals and conceded five in the process.

Arsenal Team News

Arsenal’s thrashing of Sheffield United saw Gabriel Martinelli sustain a nasty cut to his foot, and the Brazilian was not seen training on Monday, suggesting that he will not be involved in the second leg.

David Raya watched on during the clash with his parent club but is now eligible to reclaim his place in goal from Aaron Ramsdale.

Porto Team News

Left-back Wendell has recovered from the blow which saw his substituted in the first leg, but fellow defenders Zaidu Sanusi and Ivan Marcano are both on the long road to recovery from ACL problems.

Gabriel Veron is also nursing an Achilles issue, but star striker Mehdi Taremi is expected to be involved after missing the first leg with a thigh concern.
