[Video Goals] Qarabag 0-3 Arsenal: Smith Rowe On Target As Gunner Extend Winning Run
Arsenal moved a step closer to qualification to the Europa League knockouts after beating Qarabag 3-0 in Azerbaijan this evening.
Arsenal extended their winning run to eight games and moved a step closer to qualification to the Europa League knockouts after beating Qarabag 3-0 in Azerbaijan this evening.
It was the perfect start as we opened the scoring in the fourth minute with Nacho Monreal’s goal-bound header from a Mohamed Elneny corner finding the back of the net via a big deflection off Sokratis.
Qarabag had some decent chances to level things up with Bernd Leno having to make some solid saves while they also saw a goal correctly ruled out for offside but Arsenal doubled their lead early in the second half.
A long ball was flicked on by Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi drove at the home defence before laying it off to Emile Smith Rowe and the teenager kept a cool head to slot home to score his first senior goal for the club.
Any hope of a late Qarabag comeback was extinguished when we made it 3-0 in the 79th minute with Matteo Guendouzi firing in to the bottom corner from 18 yards.
The win means we move on to six points in Group E but Sporting Lisbon have also won their first two games after scoring twice in injury time to beat Vorskla in tonight’s other game.
