  1. FULL TIME. Arsenal 3 Olympiacos 1.

  2. 90+4

    What a way to wrap up the game. Ramsey collects the ball from Giroud's flick on and neatly chips the ball over Megyeri to complete victory for the Gunners.

  3. 90+4


  4. 90+2

    Coquelin goes down in agony in a collision with Abdoun and the midfielder cobbles to the side for treatment.

  5. 90+1

    Three minutes time is added on.

  6. 90

    The corner falls to Ramsey, who takes a touch but then ends up firing spectacularly wide. If they can hold on to this it really will be a hard-earned victory for Arsenal.

  7. 89

    Great chance for Arsenal! Cazorla is the architect as Giroud's luck continues to elude him as his thunderous drive clips Manolas' shoulder and zips wide.

  8. 88

    Nice interplay between Ramsey and Cazorla results in Ramsey earning a corner off Contreras.

  9. 87

    Walcott tries but can't feed through Giroud as Manolas gets in the way. The substitute has really impressed since his arrival.

  10. 86

    Maniatis' touch deserts him as he concedes the ball to Jenkinson. He charges down the right but loses out to Holebas and ends up conceding a foul as a result.

  11. 85

    The offside flag catches Giroud out as Vermaelen takes another risk by charging forward and leaving his defence weakened as a result.

  12. 84

    Cazorla, who has really picked up this half, makes a timely tackle of Fuster, as the game becomes far more open with less than seven minutes to go.

  13. 83

    Lovely work from Abdoun is helped by Jenkinson's indecision. He fires straight at Mannone though before Walcott's run downn the other end lands in Megyeri's arms as Giroud lurked.

  14. 82

    Ramsey goes in on Ibagaza but despite the playmaker's attempts for sympathy, a free-kick is given and he is told to get up.

  15. 81

    Pantelic replaces Machado as the visitors make their final roll of the dice.

  16. 80

    Double change for Arsenal as goalscorer Gervinho comes off for Giroud, while Podolski is replaced by Ramsey.

  17. 78

    Koscielny knocks the ball on from the corner but it seems to come off his shoulder and that makes it easy for Megyeri to gather.

  18. 77

    Walcott shows industry down the right, the sub doing well to earn his side a corner off Holebas.

  19. 76

    Gervinho's shocker of a first touch lets him down after Gibbs' good ball down the left, much to Olympiacos' relief as he knocks the ball out of play.

  20. 75

    Fuster falls in the area but a penalty would certainly have been harsh on Vermaelen. Arsenal then break and it's that man Vermaelen who storms forward and nearly has the chance to shoot before Megyeri claims.
