London, Oct. 19, 2017 (AltAfrika) -Olivier Giroud’s stunning late strike gave Arsenal victory at 10-man Crvena Zvezda and kept them firmly on course to reach the Europa League knockout stage.
Giroud produced the game’s one moment of quality with an inventive overhead flick to hook the ball into the net.
The goal came five minutes after Milan Rodic was shown a second yellow card for a foul on Francis Coquelin.
Richmond Boakye had hit the post for the hosts in the first half.
Arsenal are top of Group H with nine points, four ahead of second-placed BATE Borisov.
This win was their third in as many Europa League games and followed a disappointing Premier League defeat by Watford at the weekend.
