Published by Bleacher Report on Wed, 18 Mar 2015

Arsenal crashed out of the Champions League on Tuesday night despite beating French side Monaco 2-0 away from home.Atletico Madrid proceeded from the other last-16 fixture, defeating a resolute Bayer Leverkusen team 3-2 on penalties, after a 1-0 win.Here are the scores and results for Tuesday's European matches:Tuesday RecapArsenal once again exited the Champions League knockout phase early as they paid for conceding three goals at home to Monaco.The Gunners departed the competition on the away-goals rule after beating the Ligue 1 outfit 2-0 on Tuesday night, leaving the aggregate score at 3-3.Arsene Wenger knew his side needed to win by at least three goals, while keeping Monaco goalless, and the north London team almost achieved its objective.Olivier Giroud opened the scoring after 36 minutes, with Aaron Ramsey doubling the EPL side's lead in the second half.Danny Welbeck was in lively form after his recent winner against Manchester United, but the England international could not find the back of the net.Arsenal put in a concerted effort to control the match, and EPL Stats Man highlighted their dominance at half-time:Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez combined to give Arsenal width and pace, and the pair continually fed Giroud as Wenger's team pushed for a third.Ramsey's goal came with just 11 minutes left on the clock after he scored following Theo Walcott hitting a post.But it was too little, too late for Arsenal, who will rue their defensive collapse at the Emirates in the first leg.In the night's other match, Atletico Madrid made hard work of Bayer Leverkusen, who arrived at the Calderon ready to defend and retreat.Mario Suarez gave the Spanish champions the lead midway through the first half, as his deflected shot found the corner of the net.The Germans were intent on playing a deep line and looking for a counter-attack, but none of their forwards could facilitate any kind of true quality in the final third.Atleti piled on the pressure in the second half after a series of set pieceswhich saw Koke deliver a clutch of poor deliveries, against his usual high standards.The atmosphere and pressure were high octane as the final whistle drew closer, but the Germans held out to force extra time.ESPN's Dermot Corrigan highlighted the virtues of the match and spoke about the lack of true goalscoring opportunities:Extra time was a drab affair, with both teams looking tired and cautious of not conceding the fatal goal. The match was forced into penalties, with the Calderon crowd nervous and noisy.Raul Garcia andHakan Calhanoglu both missed their opening penalties, but conversions from AntoineGriezmann andSimon Rolfes made it 1-1.Further misses fromOmer Toprak and the lacklustre Koke took the match into a sudden-death final-penalty scenario.Fernando Torres calmly walked to the spot and expertly dispatched his effort, leavingStefan Kiessling to save the match for Leverkusen.But the substitute could not hold his nerve and missed the target, sending the Atletico squad into jubilant celebration.Arsenal came close to a historic win on Tuesday, but their lack of defensive verve cost them in the first leg.It is a problem that has plagued Wenger sides for many campaigns, and the French coach has still not found the best balance after a decade of weak back fours.Atletico had a tough task on their hands after losing in Germany, but they were always the aggressors against the Bundesliga team.Leverkusen were not as brave as they could have beenopting for all-out defenceand the La Liga team rightfully progressed to the next round as a result.Read more World Football news on BleacherReport.com
