Giroud gets 100th Arsenal goal in Europa win

Marko Ivanic's header was a powerful one but a top-quality keeper, which is what David Ospina imagines himself to be, would have backed himself to save it.

Arsenal have reportedly been hoping to hold out for a club to come in with a player-plus-cash deal for German global Mesut Ozil, however it looks increasingly more likely that the playmaker will remain in North London and play out the remainder of his contract. However, Scherbitski did make a fabulous, fingertip save to deny Walcott his third - a fig leaf for a terrible display.

After Mirko Ivanic had fired a shot narrowly wide, Arsenal doubled their lead in the 22nd minute when Walcott stroked the ball into the net from 15 yards out after latching on to Scherbitski's loose clearance.

The Gunners doubles their lead as Theo Walcott grabbed his second of the night.

But as the game entered its final 10 minutes, Borisov's belief began to fade and Giroud and Wilshere threatened to add further goals for Arsenal. Josh Dasilva is a left wing-back or a left-centre back. Holding hit the post from the resulting corner as BATE struggled to deal with Arsenal's setpieces.

As a corner was swung in, Shkodran Mustafi looked to be struggling to escape his marker's attentions, but the referee halted play and pointed to the spot.

Two-goal hero Walcott said after the game that he was happy to sacrifice a potential treble to give team-mate Giroud the chance for something special.

But in true Europa League fashion, BATE fire back again to narrow the score to just two goals.

On the 76th minute, Marcus McGuane came on for his Arsenal debut to replace Reiss Nelson.

A short distance west of a Russian-frequented military training ground, Arsenal take on BATE Borisov in their second Europa League group stage match.
