CSKA Moscow 2:2 Arsenal—Vote for Player Ratings & MOTM!

CSKA Moscow found goals either side of halftime breathed too much life into this second leg, and, for about 75 minutes, it looked like we'd see a repeat of AS Roma-Barcelona or, failing that, Real-Juve. Finally, Danny Welbeck settled some nerves as he scored to restore a more comfortable 3-5 aggregate, to which Aaron Ramsey added some security in stoppage-time. It wasn't pretty, and we can't quite claim to have learned any lessons from results in the Champions League, but we're through to the semifinal anyway. We'll find out who we'll face there soon enough—Salzburg, Atletico, or Marseille. Let's rate the lads!
