|The evening at a glance...|
There was little improvement from the Gunners after the break. Instead another injury to report, as Santos limped to the byline after only six minutes. Miquel took his place and would soon take part in the Arsenal goal. Just before the hour, Miquel's cross was chested down by Chamakh and confidently finished by Benayoun. A good strike but far too early to celebrate. The goal did seem to take the edge off Olympiacos and Arsenal crept back into the game as Rosicky came on in the seventy-fourth minute. The Gunners nearly equalized as Benayoun fed 'Super Tom' who was narrowly quenched by the GK. The hosts soon found their footing and renewed their attack. The Greeks had an argument for a penalty with a handball in the box late in the game. That third goal would come however, with a minute to spare as a ball headed off the bar was neatly tucked in by Modesto. So too had the game and resulting Group F standings been put to bed.
