Robin van Persie's first-half penalty gave Arsenal a slender 1-0 advantage from the first leg of their Champions League clash with Roma at Emirates Stadium.
The Dutchman kept his cool from the spot after being tripped by Philippe Mexes on 37 minutes.
Arsenal, though, should have had a second, with Nicklas Bendtner and Emmanuel Eboue both missing clear chances.
