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.

Gerrard powers Liverpool to victory in Champs League

Gerrard powers Liverpool to victory in Champs League
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard scored a late penalty to give Liverpool a 2-1 win over Ludogorets Ragzd in their first Champions League game at Anfield for five years. The visitors were hard to break down as Liverpool failed to create enough chances to break the deadlock. Mario Balotelli then scored in the 82nd to put the Merseyside club ahead, but there would be late drama as Abalo Apaulos equalised in the 90th minute. As the game winded down Liverpool were given a penalty after Ludogorets Ragzd keeper Milan Borjan lost the ball in the box, and committed a foul as the referee pointed to the spot, and showed Borjan a yellow card. Gerrard stepped up to fire the ball into the net as Liverpool escaped with a victory in Group B.
