Gunners triumph in Belgrade

Published Add your comment

Arsenal beat 10-man Partizan Belgrade 3-1 in Serbia to maintain their 100% start in Champions League Group H.

After surviving a power failure which forced the team to change in the dark and an intense atmosphere during the opening exchanges, Andrey Arshavin fired the Gunners ahead on 15 minutes, only for Brazil-born striker Cleo to level from the penalty spot.

Partizan then had Marko Jovanovic sent off for hauling down Marouane Chamakh, but Arshavin missed the penalty. However, Chamakh and Sebastien Squillaci secured victory, with stand-in goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski saving a late penalty.
