Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal surprised the media and the fans by conceding a terrible defeat against Porto in Do Dragao Stadium on the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16 following a late goal of the Portuguese team that slammed mercilessly the Gunners.

The North London side tried to have the ball dominance during the game, but their lack of effectiveness in the final meters avoided the Gunners to secure a good result against the Dragons, who secured a sensational victory against the Londoners.

In this sense, after not having been able to score a goal in the entire game, Mikel Arteta’s side conceded a late goal in the 94th minute, and Wenderson Galeno was the Porto player who sealed the 1-0 victory for the Portuguese team.

The result would have put Arsenal on the ropes, and Mikel Arteta would be forced to take important measures ahead of the next game against the Dragons, who are now the favorites to advance to the next round of the competition.

What did Arteta say about Arsenal’s defeat?

Arsenal’s coach Mikel Arteta revealed his concern in the after game press conference, where he blamed Porto’s constant interruptions to explain the Gunners’ defeat. “It's a team that is very well organized defensively. They break your rhythm all the time, there were like 35 or 37 fouls in the game, but it’s half-time, if you want to get to the quarter-finals, you have to beat your opponent. And that’s what we have to do at the Emirates now”, explained the Spanish coach.
