Arsenal managed to claw back a 2-2 draw over Wolfsburg after conceding twice in the first 25 minutes.

It sets up a key clash for the Gunners next Monday as the play the second leg at home at the Emirates Stadium in London.

And that win is the last time an English club claimed victory in the tournament, which has existed since 01/02.

Barcelona won the title in 20/21, but French side Lyon are the competition’s masters, having won the trophy eight times since 10/11.

Olympique however crashed out of these year’s competition in the quarter’s as they were beaten on penalties by Chelsea.

In a statement, a spokesman for Arsenal said: “Our aircraft developed a technical issue prior to take-off in Germany on Sunday evening.

“As a result, we remained in Wolfsburg overnight on Sunday before flying back to England on Monday afternoon.

“We would like to thank the staff onboard the aircraft and on the ground at the airport for their assistance.”
