thumbnail Hello,

There were no battling comebacks in the Champions League last 16 second legs as Arsenal and AC Milan failed to overturn first-leg deficits and crashed out of the competition.

Arsenal - which needed to overturn a 2-0 deficit - could only manage a 1-1 draw at the Allianz Arena while Atletico Madrid, which already had a goal advantage, went to town on AC Milan, evetually beating the Italian side 5-1 on aggregate.

Goal selects the best imagery from the Tuesday night's fixtures as Diego Simeone and Pep Guardiola saw their teams book a place in the quarterfinals.
