Sanchez sal­vages point for Gun­ners

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport Starts Here -

ALEXIS Sanchez sal­vaged a point for Arse­nal from their limp Cham­pi­ons League opener at Paris St-Ger­main.

Edin­son Ca­vani glanced PSG ahead af­ter 42 sec­onds and should have had a hat-trick be­fore half-time, fir­ing wide af­ter round­ing David Ospina be­fore slip­ping to fluff a sim­ple fin­ish.

Sanchez ri­fled in the re­bound from Arse­nal’s first shot on tar­get.

Alex Iwobi might have had a late Arse­nal win­ner be­fore Olivier Giroud and PSG’s Marco Ver­ratti were sent off.

Sub­sti­tute Giroud was brought on to en­liven a tame at­tack­ing dis­play and picked up two yel­low cards in his 27 min­utes, the sec­ond for an al­ter­ca­tion in which Ital­ian mid­fielder Ver­ratti also picked up a sec­ond yel­low.— BBC.
