FT: @FCKoeln 1-0 #Arsenal
⚽️ Guirrassy (‘62 PK)
Arsenal lose out this one to Köln’s penalty in a disappointing match. Players like Wilshere and Iwobi tried desperately to make something happen but the Bundesliga side were able to keep us out. Despite the result, Arsenal will finish top of the Europa League group
Despite defeat tonight, we still win our Europa League group. Köln were awful and created absolutely nothing. We simply couldn’t finish our chances, and Timo Horn had a brilliant game. Onto Burnley I guess.
It’s a strong, but completely rotated side we’ve put out tonight against Köln. Remember, Arsenal have already qualified for the knockout stages of the Europa League but still need to clinch top spot.
Predicted lineup for the our Europa League game against Cologne! What do you think? As always feel free to comment!
Away game in Germany vs Cologne, we won the first meeting at home with 3-1 after coming from a goal behind. A win today for the germans would keep them in contention to reach the knock-out stages, a draw for us would confirm our status as group winners.
