Arsenal Falter Against Slavia Prague

Tomas Holes’ injury-time header saw Slavia Prague earn a 1-1 draw at Arsenal in their Europa League quarter-final’s first leg.

The tie had appeared destined to be heading for a goalless draw after the home team missed numerous promising openings at the Emirates. They will blame themselves for tonight’s draw.

However, with just four minutes left to play, substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang slipped Nicolas Pepe on goal. The Ivory Coast forward kept his cool to dink the ball past the advancing Slavia No 1 Ondrej Kolar for his fourth Europa League goal of the season.

But just as Arsenal thought they had gained a slender lead heading into next Thursday night’s second leg in the Czech capital, up popped Holes to head home at the far post to burst the Gunners’ bubble.

The Gunners travels to face Sheffield United next, while Slavia Prague host local rivals Sparta Prague.
