Football: Ramsey off as Arsenal are held

posted in: News | 0

Aaron Ramsey was sent-off late on as Arsenal were held to a 0-0 draw in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League play-off tie with Besiktas.
In what was an open game, the Wales international recieved his first dismissal in club football for two bookable offences, which could leave Arsene Wenger with a selection headache.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain thought he had won it for 10-man Arsenal with a late run and strike at goal, but Besiktas ‘keeper Tolga Zengin brilliantly tipped the ball onto the post.
Former Chelsea hitman Demba Ba was the most threatening for the home side, even hitting the crossbar straight from kick-off at the start of the match.
The result should stand Wenger’s men in good stead for the second-leg, but a lack of cutting edge will be worrying to fans.
