But it was the away side who lit up the emirates with some great football and they scored in the first half through Geoffrey Kondogbia to make it 1-0 and take all important lead and the away goal before the break. Things got bad to worse in second half when former premier league player Dimitar Berbatov scored to make it 2-0 in 53rd minute to pretty much kill the tie off and left Arsenal fans shell shocked in what was a very disappointing performance by the home side.
Arsenal started the game pretty strong and Monacos first goal was totally against the run of play with a deflected shot of Geoffrey Kondogbia sneaked in arsenal goal for much of a surprise to the home fans.
After the break Monaco doubled their lead with a great decent counter attacking play when Per Mertesacker misjugded his tackle and ball fell nicely to Anthony Martial who squared the ball to former United and Spurs player Berbatove whos neat finish made it 2-0
