Arsenal 2 - 0 Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal boss happy with clean sheet.


Arsenal are into the Champions League knock-out stages after beating Borussia Dortmund 2-0 on Wednesday night.

It is the 15th time in a role the Gunners have made the second round of the Champions League with Real Madrid only having a better record qualifying for the 18th time.

Arsene Wenger's side were able to beat Dortmund in the Champions League for the first time in five meetings as Yaya Sanogo and Alexis Sanchez found the net to give Arsenal the win at the Emirates.

Yaya Sanogo's early strike after 73 seconds made it a dream start for the home side and in-form Sanchez increased the deficit in the 75th minute.

Despite a few wasteful chances by the Gunners, Klopp's men who struggle for form this season weren’t able to make Arsenal pay for missing a couple of good chances they created.

However Arsene Wenger was happy with the clean sheet and his sides all round display.

"Our focus to defend well together pleased me most. I think we had a similar game to Saturday (when the Gunners lost 2-0 at the Emirates to Manchester United), Arsene Wenger told Sky Sports.

"And we focussed really well not to give any chances away and overall it was a committed game and we were maybe better defensively tonight.

"We are a team that likes to go forward, and sometimes when I feel that we completely dominate a game we are maybe a bit of a victim of that and we forget to take the precaution to defend well, but I think we learn as well through the games and we have done that better tonight.”
