Manchester City nearly broke Arsenal Champions League record, but Marco Rues prevented this achievement.

Published on


Manchester City nearly broke Arsenal Champions League record but their game against Dortmund saw their effort to achieving such fate scattered.

Arsenal, who have failed to make an appearance in the European Champions League for some years now holds a clean sheet record, which makes them relevant in the competition history.

In 2006, Arsenal reached the Champions League final where they fell apart. However, they were able to play a total of 995 minutes in the competition without conceding any goal. This long clean sheet streak was brought to an end after Arsenal legend goalkeeper Jens Lehman was red-carded and Arsenal under Arsene Wenger dream of winning the competition vanished.


It is now 15 years since the record was set and it is still valid. Arsenal team comprised of renowned defenders among them Emannuel Eboue, Philippe Senderos, and Mathieu Flamini at left-back.

Arsenal have struggled in performance since the departure of Wenger and don’t seem like serious contenders to make it the Champions League competition. Whether the club will make a comeback in the near future is something we will wait to see. But this record is also ironic given the absolute clown display of the Gunners defense in recent times.

Happy 15th birthday record Gunners. Don’t count on this record, though.
