Everything for next week's game
Arsenal had ample chances to leave Rome with Benfica winning, but the equalizer of their 19-year-old wonder boy Bukayo Saka should give them confidence to move to the next round.
Arsenal felt themselves behind in the match when Emile Smith-Rowe handled the ball in the box and missed a penalty, which Pizzi removed after a small penalty.
However, the advantage lasted only two minutes, and Bukayo Saka continued his excellent season with a low cross from Cedric Soares from close range. The goal was sent to VAR, but the verdict is in favor of the Gunners.
Mikel Arteta dispatched the same team as their 4-2 victory over Leeds over the weekend. Arsenal called the team unchanged for the first time since 2018, hoping for a repeat.
His team had more than enough chances to win, but they were let down by the finish of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The wasteful Aubameyang
The Gabon player tweeted that he should have done better tonight. He hasn't been able to maintain his great shape since the weekend when he hit the hat trick.
We deserve the best, and today I have to score a couple of goals, but we continue to play one more match until the end. Well done @ BukayoSaka87? pic.twitter.com/geuDwU23N9

Aubameyang missed a great opportunity to get Arsenal ahead that they were counting on when he somehow missed six yards after Hector Bellerin put him in the shooting range.
His useless evening continued as he shot in the gate, leaving only Leyte, and exacerbated his unsuccessful evening at the gate when he got tangled up in front of the gate.
He was replaced in the 77th minute, which saved him a lot of agony, and he will hope to be less wasteful in the return leg.

I have been betting on sports since I was 20. For 5 years I have pumped myself up in this business and now, relying on my own experience, I share the secrets of the world of online betting. I'm just talking about the difficult: what is a handicap, where is it better to bet for a beginner, how to win on bets.
Sports betting is a good way to earn extra money if you know all the details. I will be glad to share my signs and experiences.
