All roads lead to Athens as Arsenal keep dream alive
Arsenal kept their Champions League hopes alive with a routine victory over Dinamo Zagreb last night. Arsene Wenger’s men had lost three of their opening four Group F fixtures, including defeat in Zagreb, and looked to be on the verge of failing to make the knock-out stages of the competition for the first time in 16 seasons. But, knowing they needed Bayern Munich to beat Olympiacos in Germany as well as take care of their own match, the Gunners held up their end of the bargain as Mesut Ozil opened the scoring before an Alexis Sanchez double sealed a comfortable 3-0 win. Bayern obliged by running riot against their Greek opposition, meaning Arsenal will go to Athens on December 9 needing to avenge the 3-2 defeat they suffered at the hands of Olympiacos at the Emirates Stadium.
