Looks like Arsenal are heading for a 3-0 win.

And Pépé makes it 3. Willock passes to Pépé at the edge of the box, he brings it out his feet and fires it into the top corner.

HT: Arsenal 2-0 Dundalk. The visitors were still in the match until the 42nd minute but a quickfire double for the Gunners has surely killed it.
1 minute added.
And it's 2. Pépé's shot is blocked and it comes to Willock who slots it past Rogers.
That's a shame for Dundalk because Arsenal haven't really put them under any real pressure.
And Arsenal are in front thanks to a mistake from Rogers. The keeper goes to punch from a corner, he mucks it up, it hits a Dundalk player, and Nketiah fires into the net.
Elneny has a shot from the edge of the box that goes well over.
Maitland-Niles has a shot that is blocked and Nketiah right on the goalline puts it wide. How did he miss that?
Willock has a shot that Rogers gets down and saves easily.
The Gunners haven't threatened at all.
First chance on target for Arsenal. Willock crosses the ball in and Rogers tips over from Kolasinac's header.
This has been a very good defensive performance from the Irish side to limit the Gunners to no shots on target.
This game is currently mostly being played in Dundalk's half. Arsenal are all over them but can't get through.
This time Nelson has a shot from the edge of the box that goes just wide.
Kolasinac crosses in but Pépé heads it over the bar.
Dundalk will be pleased with their showing so far.
No shots on target for Arsenal in this match yet.
This time Pépé has a shot that goes well over.
First chance for Arsenal but Cedric's shot from outside the box goes well over.
5 years ago Duffy lost against Berwick Rangers while playing for Alloa, now he is playing at the Emirates. Just tells you to never give up on your dreams.
McEleny has a shot from 35 yards that Runarsson has to parry behind. First chance of the match goes to Dundalk.
Dundalk haven't been in Arsenal's half yet.
And we're off.
Nathan Oduwa is on the bench for Dundalk. He used to play for Spurs.
This has to be one of Dundalk's biggest matches.
Arsenal will be hoping to build on that win against Rapid Wien tonight. Dundalk lost 2-1 to Molde last week.
This is Arsenal's first ever match against an Irish team.
Dundalk have played English sides 6 times in Europe. They lost 4 times to Liverpool, drew with Tottenham and also lost to them.
I don't expect anything other than an Arsenal win tonight. Yes, they have made lots of changes but Dundalk have only qualified for the group stages once and didn't win an away game. But who knows, there may be an upset.
Dundalk XI: Rogers, Gartland, Boyle, Daniel Cleary, Mountney, Murray, Shields, McEleney, Dummigan, Hoban, Duffy.
Arsenal XI: Runarsson, Cedric, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Maitland-Niles, Willock, Elneny, Xhaka, Nelson, Nketiah, Pepe.
Hello and welcome to the Emirates for this Europa League match. Team news to come.
