Arsenal’s Champions League hopes were destroyed last night by a slick AC Milan side!

Kevin Prince Boateng put Milan on their way with an amazing volley. Robinho headed in a second before half time and added the third shortly after the restart.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic made it 4-0 from the penalty spot – handing Arsenal their heaviest ever European defeat.

The second leg is on Tuesday 6 March, but no team has ever recovered from a 4-0 away defeat to reach the next round in the knockout stages of a European competition.
