Slavia Prague Tag Back Thomas Partey’s Wasteful Arsenal In Europa League

Slavia Prague grabbed an important away goal as they forced a 1-1 draw with Arsenal in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals.

Arsenal had a number of chances but failed to capitalize and were punished at death. Nicolas Pepe who came in as a substitute scored the opener for the Gunners but Tomáš Holeš netted the leveler in the stoppage time to deny the hosts the victory.

Bukayo Saka almost gave Arsenal the lead in the fifth minute with the first attack. Lacazette spun past Zima, collecting a decent pass from Holding, and played Saka into the area. Holes came across to make a really good tackle, getting plenty of the ball.

At the start of the second half, Arsenal won a free just outside the box. Willian stepped up to take it, he curled it in but it smacked off the side of the post and out.

In the 67th minute, Lacazette stole the ball really well off Olanyika in midfield before driving goalwards with no one anywhere near. He only had the goalkeeper to beat and decided to curl his effort to the right-wing and once again the ball pinged off the top of the crossbar.

In the 86th minute, Arsenal finally took the lead through substitute Nicolas Pepe. The former Lille man was put through by Piere-Emerick Aubamayeng and chipped the ball over the goalkeeper.

In the stoppage time, Arsenal conceded from a corner thanks to Holes’ goal, and Mikel Arteta was left fuming.

Arsenal remain unbeaten in their nine European meetings with Czech opponents (W7 D2) – however, this was the first time they’ve failed to win a home game against a side from the Czech Republic.
