Any Champions League hopes Arsenal had have been dashed by this one stat

Arsenal’s toothless, pathetic, pointless, sad, tragic and demoralising performance against Monaco on Wednesday took us all by surprise.

Let’s face it, even the biggest Arsenal haters expected the Gunners to brush aside what we all believed to be the weakest side left in the Champions League.

But it wasn’t to be. Monaco turned up at the Emirates and took advantage of what has already been labelled as the worst performance of Arsenal’s 19 years in charge of the north London club.

That said, despite the mountain Arsenal have to climb in order to reach the quarter-finals, a lot of Arsenal fans still believe they can do it. Monaco are a lot better away from home and Arsenal still have the ability to turn on the style and score goals for fun when they put their minds to it.

But Infostrada Sports have been quick to dismiss any optimism Arsenal have of still overcoming Monaco by revealing that the Gunners’ chances of progressing have been reduced to just 1.5%. Ouch.

Arsenal fans right now…

And to prove just how unlikely it is for Arsenal to progress, here are things we’re more likely to witness happen instead…
