As one of the big favorites in the Europa League, Arsenal fell to Sporting on Thursday at the stage of the round of 16.

A week after getting the draw in Lisbon (2-2), the Gunners could not make the difference in London (1-1), Goncalves (62e) having answered Xhaka (19e) to allow the Portuguese to push the Gunners to extra time, then to penalties.

A fateful session won by the Lisbon people while Martinelli missed the fourth attempt of his team, stumbling over Adan (3 tab to 5).

Sporting joins Manchester United, Juventus, AS Roma, Sevilla FC, Bayer Leverkusen, Royale Union Saint-Gilloise and Feyenoord Rotterdam in the quarter-finals.
