Arsenal vs. Besiktas: Winners and Losers from Champions League Game
Kirsty Wigglesworth/Associated Press

Arsenal are through to the Champions League proper for a 17th consecutive season after a nervy 1-0 play-off win over Besiktas on Wednesday.

Alexis Sanchez, the Gunners' record signing, scored his first goal for the club with the last kick of the first half, but the hosts were forced to hang on for the result after Mathieu Debuchy was ejected in the 75th minute.

Besiktas, and Demba Ba in particular, had numerous chances to score but could simply not find a way through, although they may have been denied a pair of first-half penalties by referee Pedro Proenca.

Following are some of the winners and losers from the second leg at the Emirates Stadium.
