Despite losing 1-0 in Portugal, Mikel Arteta’s side managed to level the tie on the night thanks to a goal from Leandro Trossard. The match was eventually decided via a penalty shootout, with David Raya saving two spot kicks and Martin Odegaard, Kai Havertz, Bukayo Saka, and Declan Rice converting their penalties to send Arsenal to the quarter-finals for the first time in 14 years.
