Arsenal's Europa League successful campaign continued in Belgrade as the Gunners beat Red Star on a late, spectacular goal from Olivier Giroud.
The France international's chances have been few and far between in the Premier League but he showed in the late going that he still has some magic in his boots. It was no scorpion kick but it was an impressive quasi-bicycle with his left foot from a looping header from just wide of the net. The tally was important as the Gunners were on the verge of leaving the Serbian capital with only a point and at least giving Red Star some hope of topping the group. With the win, the Gunners open a five point lead in the Group H standings. The Gunners took advantage of a red card to Milan Rodic in the 80th minute. Without the dismissal it might have been an uncomfortable nil-nil draw. The win should give the Gunners freedom to play increasingly inexperienced line-ups as the group stage wraps up which will help with their Premier League efforts as the fixture schedule gets clogged up.
