Arsenal 5 - Porto 0

Arsenal booked their place in the last 8 of the Champion's League with a thorough and entertaining dismantling of an over-matched Porto side this afternoon. Niklas Bendtner, who squandered a handful of easy chances in Saturday's Premier League win over Burnley, bounced back with a hat-trick today, aided by the superb Andrei Arshavin. But the goal of the game - and possibly the goal of the year - was a sublime solo effort by Samir Nasri, subbing for the injured Cesc Fabregas. Weaving his way in towards goal from the far right, Nasri impressively dribbled around and through three defenders before beating the goalie with a perfectly placed shot into the far side net.

Amazingly, considering all the injuries and other set backs this season, Arsenal are still in the hunt for two trophies: the Champion's League and the Premier League championships.
