Borussia Dortmund beat Arsenal in Germany

Borussia Dortmund defeated Arsenal 2-0 in their Group D Champions League encounter in Germany today. Dortmund were the most dangerous in attack and the Gunners had their goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny to thank as he made vital saves to keep them in the contest. Arsenal did get their chance to take the lead but former Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck saw his effort go wide. Ciro Immobile then put the German side ahead with a solo run from his own half, to evade two tackles and his right footed shot found its way past Szczesny on the stroke of half time. Three minutes into the second half it was 2-0 when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s left footed shot from the left side of the box hit the back of the net. Dortmund finished the game comfortably to lead Group D with 3 points.
