Arsenal will have to create history when they travel to Monaco tonight by overturning a two-goal deficit in an away second leg knockout Champions League tie.

After losing the first leg at the Emirates 3-1, it'll take a monumental effort for the Gunners to reach the quarter-final - a victory by a three-goal margin will guarantee progress, but a 4-2 win will get them there too on away goals.

While seven teams have previously achieved the feat - the Gunners will be the first to do it when playing the second leg away from home.
