Galatasaray vs Arsenal 1-4 live commentary:
Arsenal finish their Champions League group stage campaign on a high with an emphatic, and well-deserved, 4-1 victory. They were incredibly impressive when pushing forward, causing the Galatasaray back line plenty of problems, particularly in the first half, and were just as good at the back, with Mertesacker and Chambers putting in strong shifts in the centre of a great defensive line. It looked as if they weren’t going to be beaten, but Sneijder pulled a goal back for the hosts with just a few minutes left to play. It was too little too late however, and, as a result, Galatasaray finish at the bottom of Group D with just one point.
