So, a truly dominant Arsenal performance sees them run out 4-1 winners at the Emirates. Once Lacazette opened the scoring it never really looked in doubt and the Rapid Wien goal turned out only to be a consolation. Arsenal march on into the last-32 as group winners after an encouraging display of attacking prowess.
