Arsenal made history by becoming the first team to beat AC Milan at the San Siro, as we booked our place in the quarter-final of the Champions League.
The Gunners endured a battle at the Emirates which ended in a 0-0 stalemate, before travelling to Italy with the challenge of doing what no English side had done before them.
Goals from Cesc Fabregas and Emmanuel Adebayor late on ended up settling the tie, on a memorable night in Europe.
