BR: After an absolutely exceptional performance from Arsenal, the most obvious thing to do is bask in its glory. A Fabregas penalty started proceedings before Arsharvin, Chamakh and Vela also added their names to the score sheet.
Second in the Portuguese league, Braga were riding high into this game. They recently dispatched Celtic 5-0 and saw of Sevilla on their road to London; if only it was at Wembley and not Ashburton Grove. Arsenal entered this game the clear favourites, but many noted on the prevalent complacency Arsenal have shown in recent years and Braga entered as hopeful underdogs.
