Arsenal strike late to leapfrog Marseille

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2011-10-19

Arsenal snatched a late 1-0 win at the Vélodrome on Wednesday to overtake Marseille at the top of Group F. In other results, Chelsea thumped Belgian side Genk 5-0 while title holders Barcelona beat Czech minnows Viktoria Plzen 1-0.

REUTERS - Substitute Aaron Ramsey struck in stoppage time to secure Arsenal a 1-0 victory over Olympique Marseille in an uninspiring Champions League Group F encounter on Wednesday.

Welsh international Ramsey fired home in the second minute of stoppage time in a disappointing game at the Stade Velodrome to leave Arsenal well placed to reach the knockout stage.

Arsenal have seven points from three games, one more than Marseille. Olympiakos have three with Borussis Dortmund on one.

Neither side created many chances. The hosts wasted their best chance when Lucho Gonzalez met Mathieu Valbuena’s low cross but could only direct his effort wide across goal in the first half.

Arsenal went close after the break when Theo Walcott slipped through but was denied by the legs of keeper Steve Mandanda who was then beaten by Ramsey at the death.
