BREAKING: Heartbreak For Gunners Fans As #Galeno Stuns #Arsenal With Late Porto Winner—Arsenal will welcome Porto to the Emirates in just under three weeks’ time with their UEFA Champions League fate hanging in the balance after Wenderson Galeno scored a sensational stoppage-time winner.

 

Mikel Arteta’s side dominated possession for large swathes of the encounter but Porto looked threatening throughout and with the tie deep in stoppage time Galeno snatched a win for the hosts.

Galeno of FC Porto celebrates scoring his team’s first goal during the UEFA Champions League 2023/24 round of 16 first leg match between FC Porto and Arsenal.

Galeno struck a sensational stoppage-time winner as FC Porto secured a 1-0 victory over a toothless Arsenal in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 tie at the Estadio do Dragao.

Watch the moment below:

The Portuguese hosts saw little of the ball in the early stages but should have opened the scoring on 21 minutes when Galeno volleyed against the post before firing a close-range rebound wide.

Arsenal struggled to create clear-cut chances but went close through William Saliba’s header from Bukayo Saka’s right-wing corner.

The pattern continued in the second half with Declan Rice producing a brilliant block to deny Evanilson and Gabriel nodding a last-gasp header wide.

It looked like both sides would cancel each other out but Galeno had other ideas as he curled in a 25-yard effort four minutes into added time to snare the first-leg advantage.

Arsenal will now return to Premier League action at home to Newcastle on Saturday with the second leg of this tie at the Emirates set for March 12.
