Video: Zagreb 2-1 Arsenal: Giroud The Villain For Sorry Gunners

By on September 16, 2015

Olivier Giroud had another night to forget in the Champions League after being sent off during our 2-1 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb tonight.

We looked in control and the Frenchman missed a couple of decent chances before picking up a needless yellow for talking back to the referee.

The hosts then got a lucky goal as Pivaric’s shot was saved by Ospina only for the rebound to go in off Oxlade-Chamberlain. It wasn’t a pretty goal from a defensive point-of-view but it was still fortunate.

The nail in our coffin came just before half-time when Giroud was shown a second yellow for a soft foul and the hosts took advantage of their man advantage to make it 2-0 with a header just after the break.

Walcott came off the bench to score a tidy goal but we couldn’t force another to salvage a draw so we’ve left ourselves with it all to do in order to qualify from the group.
