Arsenal Lose To Dortmund

Arsenal’s Champions League Group D campaign got off to a poor start as Borussia Dortmund scored either side of half-time to secure a deserved victory on Tuesday.
Ciro Immobile opened the scoring after powering past Laurent Koscielny to beat Wojciech Szczesny with a low finish.
Dortmund doubled their lead when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finished another fine breakaway.
Danny Welbeck wasted Arsenal’s best chance when clean through, while Aubameyang also hit the bar.
Arsenal, competing at this stage of the Champions League for the 17th year in a row, have progressed to the knockout rounds before after losing their opening group game.
But they will have to improve significantly after a woeful display at Signal Iduna Park where they were outfought and outplayed for long periods.
The Gunners had arrived in Germany unbeaten in their previous six visits to the country.
Yet Dortmund, who had a total of 22 shots compared to Arsenal’s four, should have won by a more handsome scoreline after a sloppy and careless performance by Arsene Wenger’s side.
