FC Porto 1 - 0 Arsenal…

FC Porto 1 - 0 Arsenal…

A fantastic away day in Portugal. A great meet-up before kickoff. Chatting with friends old and new. 

And then there was the football… šŸ„“

Pah! A lacklustre performance by our boys in red on the night saw Mikel Arteta's side seemingly holding on for a draw, but switched off right at the end and were duly punished by the brilliance of Galeno. 

At 94’ the Brazilian winger took a few touches to set himself before curling a wonderful finish into the net, past the despairing full-stretch dive of David Raya. To be fair, Porto had threatened our goal earlier a couple of times too. 

Conversely, despite the Gunners dominating possession, we failed to have a single shot on target in the whole match. Poor. 

There is the opportunity to recover of course, this was just the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie. The second leg takes place the Emirates on 12th March. 

Onwards and upwards my friends.
