Champions League: Second legs under way

Champions League: Second legs under way

Zenit is eliminated by Benfica with goals late in each half, scored by Maxi Pereira and Nelson Oliveira. Arsenal tried the greatest comeback ever in European competitions, from 4-0 down. At the interval, 3-0 seemed viable but AC Milan knew how to stem the tide after the break. Arsene Wenger has a monster brewing...watch this space.
