Arsenal Roasts Celtic

Arsenal has just finished up roasting Celtic at Emirates Stadium... final score 3-1. This was the second leg of the UEFA Champions League, Playoff Round 1. In the first game, Arsenal shut out Celtic 2-0. So, the aggregate favored Arsenal 5-1.

Arsenal's first goal was very controversial. Eduardo broke away from the pack and was taken down by the Celtic goalie Artur Boruc... or so we thought. The referee whistled for a penalty kick. Eduardo nailed the PK but on further replay, it looked like Boruc made no contact with Eduardo.

Then, in the second half, Emmanuel Eboue put one in the back of the net for Arsenal. That goal kind of sealed the deal for the Gunners. Eboue has looked great so far early on.

Andrei Arshavin, who came in for Eduardo, scored in the 74th minute, which really put Celtic away. Arsenal didn't get the clean sheet, however. Massimo Donati of Celtic scored in the 90th minute, which was the only bright spot in the match for the Scottish club.
