Borussia Dortmund 2-0 Arsenal- Champions League 16th September 2014
Arsenal produced a quite dismal performance away in Dortmund on Tuesday evening, with the Gunners lucky not to lose by far more than just two goals.
Italians strikerCiro Immobile opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time after waltzing through the Arsenal backline while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made it 2-0 just after the break after some more lacklustre defending from the Gunners.

Goal of the night, however, was scored by Karim Benzema with the French striker putting a sublime finishing touch to a slick back-and-forth passing exchange with Cristiano Ronaldo on the edge of the box.
Leeds United came from behind last night to beat Bournemouth 3-1 last night with on-loan Catania defender Giuseppe Bellusci scoring a brilliant free-kick to put the visitors in front, which could see the 25 year old getting a permanent move to Elland Road unlike what we thought after being sent-off and giving away a penalty on his debut!
With Real Madrid suffering back-to-back defeats against Real Sociedad and Atletico Madrid in their last two fixtures, unrest is beginning to swell among their prissy, hyper-entitled fanbase, with several players most notably Karim Benzema and (formersaint) Iker Casillas being heavily jeered during the Atletico loss.
Ecuador striker Enner Valencia made a dream full debut for West Ham against Hull tonight scoring this 30 yard screamer in a standing position as the Hammers drew 2-2 with the hosts!
Valencia 24 who moved from Mexican top-flight side Pachuca in the Summer for around £12 million could prove to be a steal, however should he continue to bang in goals like this on a weekly bases it won't be long before clubs come sniffing around for his signature!
Deportivo Cali's keeper Luis Hurtado had a Tim Howard moment as he brought of three saves in a row, however he could have saved himself the bother had he caught the ball in the first place but to be fair he done well for the other two!
His side drew 2-2 with Peñarol with Hurtado given no chance with both goals!
Estudiante's defeated rivals Gimnasia 1-0 last night in the second round of the Copa Sudamericana, however the game didn't end in good spirits after both sets of players had to be held back from one another with Estudiante players going on to celebrate like they'd just won the competition outright!
As far as the tie went there was little goal-mouth action in Granada's 0-0 draw with Villareal in LA Liga at the week-end!
However Granada's Allan Nyon done his best to liven things up a little first with probably the worst dives of the week and secondly taking out a Villareal defender in the 90th minute and running as fast as he done all game away from the referee who showed him a yellow card once he caught up with him.
