Sanchez Goal Sends Arsenal Into Champions League

Arsenal found their way into the UEFA Champions League group phase despite being down to ten man after beating Besiktas JK (of Turkey) 1-0 in their second leg play-off match.

A single goal from Alexis Sanchez at the stroke of half time saw them win the second leg match after the first leg finished 0-0 a week ago.

It was nervy match with few very decent chances in front of goal, but once Arsenal snuck in front they shut up shop at the back.

It was an especially nervous final 15 minutes for the English club who were reduced to ten men after Mathieu Debuchy received his second yellow card.

Bayer Leverkusen (of Germany) also cruised into the Champions League group stages after an impressive 4-0 second leg win over Kobenhavn (of Denmark) which saw them run out 7-2 aggregate winners.

Joining Arsenal and Leverkusen in the group stages of Europe’s biggest cup competition will be Athletic Club (of Spain) and Malmo FF (of Sweden).

Athletic Club beat Napoli (of Italy) 3-1 on the night for a 4-2 aggregate score.

Malmo FF beat Salzburg (of Austria) 3-0 on the night for a 4-2 aggregate score.
