Arsenal has been dealt a blow ahead of their crucial UEFA Champions League clash with FC Porto as Gabriel Martinelli is set to miss the upcoming match due to a foot injury as per The Athletic. The Brazilian forward, who has been a key contributor this season with six goals and four assists in the Premier League, was noticeably absent from training on Monday, signaling his unavailability for the Porto game.

Martinelli’s absence comes as a significant setback for Arsenal as they gear up for the second leg of the round of 16 tie against Porto at the Emirates Stadium. With the Gunners trailing 1-0 from the first leg, Martinelli’s attacking prowess and goal-scoring threat will be sorely missed as Arsenal seeks to overturn the deficit and progress in the Champions League.

As Arsenal currently leads the Premier League standings with 64 points after 28 league games, the absence of a key player like Martinelli poses a challenge for the team’s ambitions on both domestic and European fronts. The setback underscores the importance of squad depth and resilience as Arsenal navigates a crucial juncture in their season.

As fans eagerly await further updates on Martinelli’s recovery timeline, Arsenal will need to regroup and adapt their tactics in his absence to mount a strong challenge against Porto. With the Emirates Stadium set to host another pivotal European night, the Gunners will be looking to overcome this obstacle and deliver a spirited performance to keep their Champions League aspirations alive.
