Arsenal Wins Cologne – Arsenal 3-1 Cologne

Arsenal Wins Cologne – Arsenal 3-1 Cologne – That does seal it now! Sead Kolasinac does well again to drive down the left and put in a low cross, Jack Wilshere sells a lovely dummy on the edge of the area which takes two defenders out of the game. The ball ends up at the feet of Theo Walcott, his shot is saved by Timo Horn but Hector Bellerin, backing up behind, reacts well to sweep home.

‘It won’t be remembered for the football’ – John Southall, football reporter said.

So victory for Arsenal, but the game seems almost irrelevant after the unsavoury pre match trouble. Uefa will investigate and numerous questions need to be answered, most significantly how did the segregation break down so alarmingly with thousands of Cologne fans in Arsenal areas, including the family section?

It was a good win for Arsenal in the end with two terrific goals from Sead Kolosinac and Alexis Sanchez, but it’s a night that won’t be remembered for the football.
