Arsenal 4-1 Fast Vienna: Gunners win in Europa League in entrance of two,000 followers

Alexandre Lacazette’s opener ended his eight-game goal drought for the Gunners

Arsenal gave their supporters the perfect welcome back to Emirates Stadium as Rapid Vienna were outclassed in the Europa League.

It had been 271 days since Arsenal fans had last been at their home, for the victory against West Ham United on 7 March – and how the 2,000 allowed in relished watching the Gunners confirm their dominance of Group B.

Alexandre Lacazette gave those gathered at a social distance inside the cavernous stadium an early reward with a spectacular 25-yard drive after 10 minutes that swerved high beyond the reach of Rapid keeper Richard Strebinger.

Pablo Mari then glanced Reiss Nelson’s corner in off a post before Eddie Nketiah completed the first-half scoring a minute before the interval, heading in after his first effort had been saved by the besieged Strebinger.

Rapid, hopelessly inferior, scrambled a goal back through Kohya Kitigawa early in the second half but Arsenal were never in any danger and substitute Emile Smith-Rowe scored a simple fourth from Ainsley Maitland-Niles pass.
