Report: Udinese 1-2 Arsenal

Arsenal secured a spot in the group stage of the Champions League with an eventful 2-1 victory over Udinese in Italy.

The Gunners did not seem nervy from the start and could have snatched a lead through their early dominance but it was Udinese who came closest to scoring as Di Natale netted but was rightly ruled offside and then hit the post with another opportunity.

Udinese’s skipper did grab a goal moments later to put his side ahead with a looping header as the hosts leveled matters on aggregate.

Arsenal went into half-time starring a gloomy scenario but Gervinho set up Van Persie perfectly for the Dutchman to make it 1-1 on the night after the restart. Somehow, the visitors were dealt another scare just after scoring as Udinese earned a penalty which was vitally saved by a Szczesny.

Wenger’s men owned the advantage again and a clean finish from Walcott ensured it stayed that way as the Gunners clinched a 2-1 victory on the night and a place amongst Europe’s elite when the draw for the Champions League’s group stage is made in Nyon.

  6. wat a scare i had wen we were leveld on aggregate..bur d team showed a non relentin strength 2 fight bck..a gud game nd i hpe new playerx comex in b4 d deadline..wojeck is da hero arsene we trust

  7. worryingly wenger spoke of “players coming back” when asked about new signings in the post match interview. however, gentlemen let us rejoice tonight and enjoy the moment because that was a massive relief this evening.

  8. Excellent match this evening. Jenkinson was brilliant and a real shrewd signing from the professor. Gervinho had a good game but hats off to Mr Szczesny, what a save!!! Im finally convinced that we dont need a new keeper, he didnt put a foot wrong. However I feel that we still need 1 defender, 1 midfielder and a quality striker to ease the load on RvP. All in all from the above the only real necessity is a world class defender, we have so many versatile players that bar many injuries we can put out a team that can give any team a run for their money. Great performance and lets hope for a mercyfull draw 2morrow 🙂

  9. A very Good performance from this team. Its a perfect response when everybody even large section of arsenal fans have lost hope in this team…keep it up, you have shamed the critics…
