Arsenal 1-1 Slavia Prague: Gunners frustrated by last-gasp equaliser

A

rsenal were left frustrated as Slavia Prague netted a potentially key away goal in the dying seconds of Thursday’s Europa League quarter-final first-leg tie.

Czech defender Tomas Holes headed in at the back post deep into second-half stoppage time at the Emirates Stadium, just minutes after Nicolas Pepe had come off the bench to put the Gunners ahead.

The Ivorian winger was released by fellow substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and produced a lovely dinked finish over goalkeeper Ondrej Kolar to break the deadlock with just four minutes remaining at Emirates Stadium.

It was Pepe’s fourth Europa League goal of the season and had looked to put Arsenal in control of the tie, but now there is much work to do in the second leg in Prague next week.
