As well that PSV Eindhoven were already in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League. Guus Hiddink's side were thrashed 4-1 by Panathinaikos, who advance to the UEFA Cup.

The Greeks' only hope of survival in Europe's premier club competition was for Rosenborg to get a result at Highbury but while Arsenal excelled, Panathinaikos recorded an emphatic win courtesy of a brace from captain Markus Munch and goals from Dimitrios Papadopoulos and Lucian Sanmartean.

Panathinaikos showed their attacking intent by fielding three strikers and Ezequiel Gonzalez, operating just behind Papadopoulos and Emmanuel Olisadebe, almost gave his side an early lead with an inadvertent touch to Nasief Morris's header.

But the home side were grateful to goalkeeper Mario Galinovic for a point-blank block from the lively winger DaMarcus Beasley to preserve parity.

And after Angelos Basinas fired just wide, the lively Papadopoulos poked in Munch's near-post cross.

But Beasley brought PSV level with a delicate chip after Philip Cocu's pass found the Panathinaikos defence wanting.

The influential Papadopoulos made a second decisive contribution with a theatrical reaction to goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes' challenge. Munch calmly converted the penalty.

His set-piece expertise was in evidence again after half time as the German scored a second from a free kick, helped by Gomes' half-hearted attempt to stop it.

Two goals behind, PSV spurned a glorious opportunity to halve the deficit as Mark van Bommel's penalty was saved by Galinovic, though it is debatable whether the keeper should have been on the pitch after his challenge on Park Ji-Sung.

He made the most of his reprieve and substitute Sanmartean added a fourth goal when capitalising on a defensive slip to confidently stroke the ball past Heurelho Gomes.
