UCL: Arse­nal beat Bay­ern, Chelsea held

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Olivier Giroud and Me­sut Ozil scored late on as Arse­nal beat Bay­ern Mu­nich to record their first win in this sea­son’s Cham­pi­ons League. Bay­ern dom­i­nated pos­ses­sion but had goal­keeper Manuel Neuer to thank for a bril­liant save to deny Theo Wal­cott in the first half. Petr Cech tipped over Robert Le­wandowski’s strike be­fore Giroud headed Arse­nal ahead from a free-kick.

Ozil scored from close range in stop­page time to seal the Group F win. In an­other UEFA Champins League fix­ture, Chelsea were held to a go­a­less draw by hosts Dy­namo Kiev.
