Arsenal lost 0-1 at Porto in the first leg and received their fifth consecutive defeat in the 1/8 round of the Champions League.

The last time the `Gunners` won in the 1/8 round of the Champions League was when they defeated AS Monaco 2-0 in the first leg of the 2014-2015 season in France.

Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard was fouled by Ivan Jaime in the 0-1 loss to Porto at Dragao Stadium in the first leg of the 1/8 round of the Champions League on February 21.

Arteta said Arsenal will have to adjust a few things to thrive and create more opportunities when they play the return leg at Emirates home field today.

Arsenal could not find a rhythm in the first leg at Dragao Stadium, when host Porto fouled 36 times – the second highest number in the Champions League this season, and the live ball time only accounted for 51.7% of the whole match.

Captain Martin Odegaard believes that Arsenal just won 2-1 against Brentford with a similar `buying time` strategy and sees this as ideal preparation for the second leg of the 1/8 round of the Champions League.
