The second leg was not any better for Arsenal, who were forced to relive the same scoreline in front of their own fans.

Chelsea managed to send the game to extra time through a late Frank Lampard penalty and in the end, Branislav Ivanovic put away a low cross from Drogba securing the win for Chelsea 5-4 on aggregate.
Arsenal 1-1 Roma 2008/09
The match between Arsenal and Roma was not the most attractive tie of the 2008/09 season, but it ended in an incredibly tense penalty shoot-out. The first leg was played at the Emirates Stadium and was defined by a Robin van Persie penalty in the 37th minute.
In the reverse leg of the fixture, it was Roma who got the upper hand and lead through Juan's tap-in at the back post. Extra time remained scoreless and the match went to penalties. After 13 spot kicks, the Gunners walked away victorious into the quarter-finals of the competition.
Bayern Munich 6-4 Juventus 2015/16
The first leg was dominated by Bayern for the majority of the first hour, but Juventus
Juve came out firing on all cylinders in the second leg, scoring twice in the first 30 minutes. They ended up working themselves into the ground, and could not sustain that level of play for the entire match. Bayern ended up scoring in the 91st minute to send the tie to extra time, where they would go onto score another two goals and eventually move on to the quarter-final.
Chelsea 5-4 Barcelona 2004/05
Barcelona hosted the first leg and were on the front foot for most of the game. With the exception of an own goal in the 33rd minute, it was a very convincing performance by the Blaugrana, culminating in a 3-1 aggregate lead.
The second leg of this tie will always be defined by Ronaldinho's out swinging strike from the top of the box, despite it counting for very little in the end. Chelsea came out and scored three goals in 20 minutes, leaving Barcelona on their heals. Ronaldinho produced a world-class performance pulling two goals back for Barça, but in the end, it was a towering header by John Terry which sent the Blues to the next round.
Barcelona 6-5 PSG 2016/17
The most memorable last 16 Champions League tie really only has one possibility. Barcelona coming back from a four-goal deficit in the second leg is one of the most improbable outcomes to a match many people have ever seen.
The first leg was completely dominated by PSG who humiliated Barcelona in every aspect of the match. Angel Di Maria scored a brace for the Parisians, in addition to goals coming from Julian Draxler and Edinson Cavani. The 4-0 win at home for PSG essentially put the tie to bed, but Barca had other plans.
In the second leg of the fixture Barcelona came out strong scoring three in 50 minutes, but a 62nd-minute goal from Cavani seemed to put the tie away on away goals. Barcelona decided to write their own script by scoring three goals in the final two minutes plus added time to somehow steal the victory from PSG.
