Arsenal failed to make the Champions League last eight for the fifth straight season despite beating Monaco in the second leg of their last-16 tie.
Needing to score three unanswered away goals, a feat never achieved before in a second-leg, they went ahead through Olivier Giroud’s close-range finish.
A lively Danny Welbeck went close to doubling the lead before half-time, reports the BBC.
And although Aaron Ramsey came off the bench to score late on, with Giroud going close again, Monaco held on.
It was a heartbreaking end to Arsenal’s Champions League campaign as they pressed for the third goal they needed to progress.
