In the Arsenal matchday programme, the lyrics to the Champions League's anthem were printed.
It was Arsenal's first Champions League appearance in six years.
The opening bars of "Zadok The Priest" were audible across a rain-soaked Emirates Stadium,
a cathartic release of the pain associated with their prolonged
Absence from Europe's premier club stage.
Gunners were determined to seize their moment back in the big time,
4-0 on Wednesday with authority typically associated with Champions League veterans.
In March 2017, they lost 5-1 at home to Bayern Munich,
But none of the starting lineup is still there.
