Arsenal 2:0 Dortmund
Very disappointing performance tonight on both ends. Ciro, Heno, and Aubameyang were all wasteful on the counter attacks while defensively the team was all over the place. I don't like Ginter at all as a CB, he is just too mistake prone and lightweight for that position. Schmelzer and Grosskreutz together unsurprisingly killed our left side, they did absolutely nothing of note there and it really is puzzling as to how KG keeps getting so many minutes when he is contributing next to nothing offensively nowadays. He should be a last resort option on the wings, his best position is clearly at RB now.
Only positives lately are that Piszczek and Gundogan are starting to show signs of their old form, hopefully they keep building their rhythm from here. Anyways the H2H record against Arsenal is now level but our GD is far superior to theirs (+10 to +4) so even a point at home to Anderlecht will be enough to win the group realistically. Shame not to have got it done here, but it is what it is. On to Frankfurt at the weekend.
R.I.P. Tito Vilanova
