Europa League: Arsenal defeat Red Star Belgrade to maintain flawless run

Europa League: Arsenal defeat Red Star Belgrade to maintain flawless run

Red Star was extremely organized in defense all game, but they also began threatening Arsenal's backline in the second half getting most of the chances.

However, the first chance went the way of the Gunners, with Theo Walcott being superbly denied by Milan Borjan after the ball had fallen invitingly for him from a free kick. And part of the package for opposition teams when they come to the Serbian capital to play Red Star, is the tunnel walk like no other. "He came out very quickly on counter-attacks and sometimes when we lost the ball in unexpected ways it was risky, and Petr Cech kept us in the game".

Arsenal themselves nearly found a breakthrough in the first half with Egypt worldwide Mohamed Elneny's cross finding Olivier Giroud but his header went wide.

Five minutes later, Red Star were in again after poor defending from Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Arsenal faced a very tough challenge in Serbia today as they played in one of the toughest environments in Europe against Red Star Belgrade at Rajko Mitić Stadium. Mohamed Elneny, playing in a three-man defence, almost gifted Red Star a goal.

With that in mind, there's not much of a reference point to show what could be expected in our third group game of the tournament, but like every team, Red Star Belgrade are playing league football.

Wilshere found space outside the box before feeding Walcott.

The man advantage eventually paid off five minutes later as Jack Wilshere spearheaded a trademark Arsenal passing move which led to Olivier Giroud adjusting his body well to score an overhead kick, adding to his collection of spectacular goals.
