Arsenal 2-0 Borussia Dortmund: Sanogo and Sanchez see Gunners through to last-16

first_img1 Yaya Sanogo celebrates his maiden Gunners goal Yaya Sanogo’s first Arsenal goal helped secure a 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund as the Gunners booked their place in the Champions League last-16.The Frenchman opened the scoring as he collected Santi Cazorla’s ball and finished calmly inside two minutes.Chilean Alexis Sanchez then claimed his 13th goal of his debut season in north London as he curled home from 20 yards past the despairing Roman Weidenfeller to double the hosts’ lead in the second half.The win secured Arsenal’s progress, as the Gunners joined London counterparts Chelsea in the hat for the next round.Arsene Wenger knew a point would be enough for qualification, and his side made a dream start as Sanogo bagged his first goal in a red and white shirt, and with renewed confidence he almost doubled the Gunners’ lead as he burst through one on one with Weidenfeller. But the Frenchman took too long to steady himself and his curling effort was easily charged down.Despite their slow start, Jurgen Klopp’s men settled and almost equalised as Ciro Immobile was a big toe away from providing Dortmund with a leveller. Arsenal’s defensive frailties were almost punished as the Italian was allowed to run free towards the back post but he couldn’t get on the end of Lukasz Piszczek’s whipped cross from the right.The Gunners took the sting of out the game with a lengthy spell of possession, but were guilty of trying to walk the ball into the back of the net. And they were nearly made to pay for their wastefulness as Emilano Martinez came to their rescue for the Gunners as he smartly denied Henrikh Mkhitaryan. But the Emirates Stadium faithful seemed happy enough at half-time and they were nearly cheering again just six minutes into the second half as Sanchez burst from the halfway line and forced Weidenfeller into a sprawling save.They were on their feet again as England winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain cracked the woodwork from range with a fantastic speculative effort, but the hosts would not be denied for long.And once more it was Sanchez who did the damage, with another mazy run culminating in a beautiful curled short from 20 yards into the bottom corner.That settled any remaining nerves and Arsenal were able to coast to victory, restricting their opponents to only a couple of half chances.And that will have left Wenger with a smile on his face as his side once again booked their berth in the knockout stages.last_img read more
