* Arsenal have kept clean sheets in 11 of their last 15 European away games and have won nine of the last 16.

* Arsenal, who must score to have a chance of advancing, have netted only once away in three Champions League quarter-finals – at Chelsea in 2004. They lost 1-0 to Valencia in 2001 and drew 0-0 with Juventus in 2006.
