Porto, Man United and Arsenal also qualify


Porto, Manchester United and Arsenal joined Barça in the CL quarterfinals on Wednesday evening and are all potential opponents in the next round.

The other three ties on the night were all pretty close, especially in Rome (the host city for this year’s final), where Arsenal needed a penalty shootout to dispatch Roma. Tonetto missed Roma’s eighth penalty to send Arsenal through.

United tame Inter

The dream vanishes for Atlético
