The scoreline flatters us a bit on the defensive end, as Benfica threatened frequently but could only capitalize once, denying Damian Martinez a clean sheet. Then again, we could have bagged a few more of our own but for some all-too-familiar misses. The game turned into the Yaya Sanogo show as the man not only opened his Arsenal account in the 26th minute but added three more goals, with Joel Campbell also getting his first Arsenal goal for good measure. This one was well and truly over by halftime when the scoreline was 3-0. Still, the final gives us a strong edge going into tomorrow's match against Monaco. Three points for the win, plus five points for the goals, means we have eight points to three each for Monaco and Valencia, who tied 2-2 earlier in the day. We'll take a closer look at things later. For now, sit back, relax, and enjoy the highlights!
If technical difficulties with the video do arise, I'll see what I can do.
