Arsenal roar back against Standard Liege to win group


Stockholm: Arsenal have come from two goals down to draw 2-2 away to Standard Liege and win their group while Dynamo Kiev and Lazio crashed out of the Europa League after the final round of group games.

After a sluggish first half on Friday (AEDT), Arsenal went behind to two deflected strikes by Samuel Bastien and Selim Amallah before bursting into life after the break when Alexandre Lacazette and Bukayo Saka scored to put them level.

Eintracht Frankfurt looked set to go through as group F winners until they conceded two late goals to lose 3-2 to bottom side Vitoria Guimaraes, putting the Gunners through as group winners on 11 points, with the Germans second on nine.

Swedish side Malmo FF won their Scandinavian derby against FC Copenhagen, topping group B ahead of their Danish rivals thanks to a 1-0 away win, while Dynamo Kiev slumped to a shock 1-0 defeat at home by bottom side Lugano to crash out.
