Arsenal played well in the first half, keeping City at bay, while creating plenty going forward. In the second half there was some setback. Ødegaard was, like many players from the presumptive eleven, benched for the cup match.

With a quarter of an hour remaining, Ødegaard entered. This time did not help. But he felt a little frustrated on the road.

City, who lost Haaland without goals, advanced to the fifth round with a 1-0 victory.
