It was almost becoming one of those days again as Arsenal couldn't not
assert their dominance in the first half of the encounter. Second half
soon came and Arsenal seemed to be heading towards a shock exit as Per
Mertesacker conceded a penalty and Jordi Gomez put it into the net in
the 63rd minute. Per mertesacker soon became the hero as he head in
the ball in the net in the 83rd minute.
Extra time and penalty kick and it was Fabianski who became the hero
as he saved two penalties while Arteta, Källstrom, Giroud and Cazorla
all showed composure to send Arsenal through to the final.
