Shakhtar 2-1 Arsenal

Shakhtar 2-1 Arsenal

PanARMENIAN.Net - Eduardo netted against his former club Arsenal for a second Champions League game running as the Gunners gifted Shakhtar Donetsk both goals in a 2-1 Group H defeat at the Donbass Arena.

The result extends Shakhtar's remarkable unbeaten home run to 48 games.

It was a deserved win for Shakhtar on the balance of play but - with main striker Luiz Adriano subdued and Gunners keeper Lukas Fabianski again solid - they needed an own-goal from Craig Eastmond and a moment of madness by Gael Clichy to help Eduardo overhaul Theo Walcott’s trademark early strike.

The win puts Shakhtar level on points with Arsenal in Group H and goes some way to avenging the 5-1 defeat at the Emirates last time out, although that scoreline means Arsenal are well ahead on the head-to-head rule in what should be a toss-up between these two for first place, Eurosport reports.
