UCL Review: Borussia Dortmund 0-1 Arsenal (Nothing is impossible)



Nothing is impossible as Arsenal earned a major win and became the first English club to beat Dortmund at Dortmund. The result stunned the world as most of the football pundits had written off the Gunners before the match but little did they know that this team is at its dangerous when they play as the underdogs. Arsenal are the club of firsts as they were the first English club to beat Real Madrid in Bernabeau, AC Milan in San Siro, Bayern Munich in Munich and now Borussia Dortmund in Dortmund. The win sends Arsenal to the top of the Group – F which many has dubbed as the “Group of Death” with two games to go. 

It was a very tensed game and it was Arsenal’s solid defensive performance which did the the job done as the Gunners back four weathered the storm from the get go and displayed a brave and matured performance throughout the 90 minutes. It was goalless at half-time. The first 15 minutes of the second half was dominated completely by Dortmund and they even found the net twice but were denied because of it being off-sides. Then, the Gunners took advantage of the few loop holes in Dortmund’s defense as Olivier Giroud’s assist through Mesut Ozil’s looping pass was headed in by none other than Arsenal’s man in form Aaron Ramsey which proved to be the winner against last season’s UEFA Champions League finalists. 

Arsenal proved their doubters wrong by pulling off 2 back to back big game wins and they will now be aiming to make it 3 big game wins in a row when they travel to Old Trafford this Sunday to face one of their arch-nemesis Manchester United in the league.
