  • GOAL! Arsenal lead! The resulting corner is swung into the heart of the Qarabag penalty area and finds Monreal, whose downward header bounces off the thigh of Sokratis and into the back of the net. What a start!

  • Iwobi comfortably gets the better of Medvedev as he sprints down the left wing, but he's cynically pulled back by the defender and the referee has no option but to reach for his yellow card.

  • GOAL! Arsenal have doubled their lead, and it's Smith Rowe with it! The visitors go long and manage to catch Qarabag out at the back. Iwobi latches onto a lofted pass and then sets up Smith Rowe, who sends a low shot straight through the legs of Vagner for his first ever Arsenal goal.

  • GOAL! Guendouzi finishes the job for Arsenal! A half-hearted Qarabag attacking move comes to an end and the visitors immediately counter-attack. Lacazette heads towards the box before poking a pass over to Guendouzi, who then finds the bottom left-hand corner of the net with a smart finish. That's his first goal for the club!
