PARIS Nike Air Max 90 Sale Outlet , March 17 (Xinhua) -- Arsene Wenger's Arsenal claimed a 2-0 victory at Monaco on Tuesday but still crashed out of the European Champions League on away goals with a 3-3 aggregate result.
It has been the fifth straight season for the English Premier League side to miss the quarterfinals.
Ligue 1 runners-up Monaco clinched a 3-1 win on Feb. 25 in London with the Gunners having conceded the third goal completely unnecessarily.
In Tuesday's second leg encounter, Arsenal started slow with the hosts looking more urgent.
Olivier Giroud, who headed a difficult chance wide at 14 minutes, ran onto a Danny Welbeck through ball on 36 minutes and his first shot was saved before the French international smashed the rebound into the top of the net.
In the 79th minute, midfielder Aaron Ramsey scored the second for Arsenal after Theo Walcott hit the post and a loose ball from the rival defenders found the youngster.
Giroud could have give the visitors a life line shortly after Nike Air Vapormax Sale Outlet , but his header was incredibly clawed off the line.
With Arsenal players lumping the ball into the Monaco penalty box, a route having been well defended all game, the visitors failed to use the remaining 10 minutes and the five-minute stoppage constructively.
Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker admitted the better team over two legs went through.
"Monaco deserved it because they played much better in the first leg," he said. "We played well today but it was a massive deficit, and it wasn't enough tonight."
BEIJING Nike Air Max 2017 Sale Outlet , March 2 (Xinhua) -- Chinese scholars will start to compile a four-language dictionary this year on palm-leaf manuscripts of Buddhist sutras and valuable ancient records, a Tibetan scholar and national political advisor told Xinhua Monday.

MADRID Air Max 90 Sale Outlet , March 17 (Xinhua) -- FC Barcelona's next five days will ultimately define whether their season is a success or failure as they start the period by entertaining Manchester City in the Camp Nou Stadium on Wednesday night in their Champions League last 16 tie.
Barca must defend a 2-1 first leg lead against the English champions before on Sunday playing at home to Real Madrid in a game which will almost certainly decide the destination of the BBVA Primera Liga.
Luis Enrique's side are almost at full strength and rested from the weekend as several key players such as Jordi Alba, Javier Mascherano, Dani Alves and Andres Iniesta were all rested or suspended for the 2-0 win away to Eibar.
Sergio Busquets in the only player who is likely to miss out as an ankle injury he suffered a fortnight ago means he is still touch and go to be fit for the weekend.
Busquets' absence means the only doubt will be who fills his absence in midfield and Luis Enrique must decide whether to continue with Rafinha in the middle or put his faith in Xavi Hernandez, or push Mascherano into a more advanced role and bring either Jeremy Matthieu or Marc Bartra in alongside Gerard Pique in defense.
Manchester City travel to the Camp Nou on the back of a dreadful display that saw them outfought and defeated 1-0 away to relegation candidates Burnley at the weekend.
That defeat saw them slip six points behind Barclays Premier League leaders, Chelsea Air Vapormax Sale Outlet , who also have a game in hand and Manuel Pellegrini's side now have a battle on their hands to finish in second place ahead of Arsenal.
Manchester City need to score at least twice in the Camp Nou to have a chance of going through and will be grateful for Leo Messi's late missed penalty three weeks ago, which would have put the tie beyond reach.
Players such as Kun Aguero, David Silva, Wilfred Bony and Edin Dzeko are capable of scoring the necessary goals, but to have any chance City will need to control the midfield and defend better against Barca's attacking trio of Neymar Air Max 2017 Sale Outlet , Leo Messi and Luis Suarez and if Barca hit their stride that is a lot easier said than done.
