Manager Arsene Wenger maintains Arsenal should take "massive satisfaction" in having reached the knockout stages of the Champions League for a 13th consecutive season - a record which their big-spending English rivals cannot match.

Only Real Madrid, with 16, can better the Gunners' European run of progression from the opening group phase, which was secured on Wednesday night with a 2-0 home win over Montpellier.

"If you look at how many teams have done that in Europe, you will find very few and that shows it is not easy," said Wenger. "It is a massive satisfaction because I am so many times with my back to the wall, accused of not spending fortunes."
