Four English clubs AS Monaco have eliminated from the Champions League
#2 Monaco* 3-3 Arsenal – Round of 16, 2014-15
Arsene Wenger had led Monaco to the Ligue 1 and the Coupe de France titles during his time there before leaving under acrimonious circumstances. Wenger’s Arsenal would feel the full might of Monaco’s attacking prowess in the Round of 16 clash of the 2014-15 Champions League season.
Leonardo Jardim had just started his stint as Monaco manager and the Principality side featuring Dimitar Berbatov, Ricardo Carvalho and Anthony Martial exceeded his expectations when they thrashed Arsenal 3-1 at Emirates Stadium.
Having been 2-0 down in normal time, Arsenal had pulled a goal back in the first minute of injury time through Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but Yannick Carrasco restored Monaco’s two-goal advantage with the vital third away goal seconds before the final whistle.
That third goal would prove to be the difference in the return leg at the Stade Louis II as Arsenal came out all guns blazing and took the lead before half-time. When Aaron Ramsey scored past Danijel Subasic for his team’s second goal in the 79th minute, all Arsenal required was one more goal to go through.
However, Monaco held firm and the match ended 3-3 on aggregate – which meant that Monaco went through courtesy of the away goals that they scored at the Emirates Stadium.
