Rapid Wien vs Arsenal Live Score

74' AUBAMEYANG!!! 2-1 ARSENAL! What a lovely move by the Gunners! Elneny splits the defence with a precise through ball. Bellerin races onto it and squares for an unmarked Aubameyang to slot into the empty net.

72' Another let-off for Leno! Although Luiz appears to be in control of his chase with Fountas, Leno unnecessarily races out of goal and sends his clearance against his own defender. The ball breaks for Fountas, but Gabriel and Luiz do just about enough to put him off.

70' LUIZ!!! 1-1! Arsenal are level! The centre-half ghosts into the area and climbs to head home Pepe's delicious free-kick from the right flank.

68' Rapid lead by a goal to nil as we head into the final quarter of this game. Can they hold on for a huge victory, or will Arsenal respond as the clock ticks down?
65' Aubameyang's first act sees him stand over a free-kick in a good position for the Gunners. However, he generates far too much elevation on his delivery, which goes high into the empty stand.
E. Kara
Yellow Card
Rapid Wien
63' Kara has his name taken after a rash challenge on Gabriel.
P. Aubameyang
E. Nketiah
61' Meanwhile, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is also introduced and immediately takes the captain's armband. Nketiah is the player to make way.
Cédric Soares
61' Arsenal make a double-change. The first sees Hector Bellerin replace Cedric.
K. Arase
Yellow Card
Rapid Wien
60' Arase is booked for a foul on Nketiah.
59' What a let-off! A poor clearance from Leno goes straight to Fountas. The striker gets his shot away, but the Arsenal goalkeeper atones for his error with an important save.

56' Not the start to the second half Arsenal were looking for. Should this scoreline remain, it would be the Gunners' third defeat in four games, but time is very much on their side for now.
53' That is Fountas' eighth goal in as many games across all competitions this season and Rapid take a deserved lead at Weststadion. 

51' FOUNTAS!!! 1-0 RAPID! What a mix-up in the Arsenal defence! Trying to play out from the back, Leno is intercepted by Kara and the ball breaks for Fountas, who drills it home.

46' OFF WE GO AGAIN! Rapid get us underway once more!

45' We are going to have three minutes of stoppage time at the end of this first half.
43' Not far away! Ritzmaier's low cross is well taken into his stride by Kara, who drags his shot just wide of the far post.

42' Whatever Saka's problem, it is not game-ending for now. The England international is back out there and moving freely.
40' A worry for Arsenal with Saka in need of attention from the medical team. The nature of his injury appears unclear as he makes his way to the touchline.
E. Nketiah
Yellow Card
37' Nketiah has his name taken as he is deemed to have kicked the ball away after Arsenal had been ruled offside. 
36' Partey's yellow card looked slightly harsh in all fairness, but he now needs to tread carefully for the remainder of this game. The Ghanaian does not want his full Arsenal debut to end prematurely.

34' Partey is booked after accidentally catching Fountas in the face with his trailing arm.
33' Great tackle! Rapid look to hit Arsenal on the counter and Fountas takes Arase's diagonal ball neatly into his stride. However, Partey steps in to get a crucial toe on the ball and snuff out the danger.

30' Rapid arrived in this game on the back of three consecutive victories, including a thumping 5-1 success over Wiener Neustadt in the Austrian Cup last weekend. They have momentum, but can they build on it here?
A. Lacazette
Yellow Card
27' Lacazette goes into the book as he takes his protest too far after being penalised for a foul on Kara.
25' Arsenal are protecting a solid away record on the continent today. They have been beaten just once in their last seven games away from the Emirates in the Europa League; that was the 2019 final.
22' The match remains goalless as we hit the midway point in the first half. Neither side has produced too much of a goal threat as of yet.

19' Nervy times for the Gunners. Arase bursts into the box from the right and squares the ball for Ritzmaier, whose deflected backheel is just about held onto by Leno.
18' Arsenal have endured contrasting fortunes on the road since lockdown, winning five but losing six of their 11 games away from the Emirates.
S. Grahovac
Yellow Card
Rapid Wien
15' Grahovac is shown the first yellow card of the game for a rash foul on Pepe.
15' An unmarked Luiz drifts to the far post to meet Cedric's deep free-kick into the box. The defender generates good power on his header and the goalkeeper is forced to push it away to safety.
13' Saka certainly knows what it takes to produce the goods in the Europa League. In fact, he was directly involved in more goals than any other Arsenal player during last season's competition.

11' It has been an exciting time for Saka recently. The wing-back made his first senior England appearances during the international break and gave an impressive account of himself in the process. He will be eager to build on his momentum here.

9' Chance for Arsenal! The Gunners open up their opponents with Partey linking up with Nketiah down the left. The latter feeds the onrushing Saka, who darts into the box but is unable to get the ball under control and Strebinger gratefully gathers.

6' Relief for the hosts as Fountas returns to the action after receiving the treatment he needed.

5' A slight concern for Rapid as Fountas stays down after he is challenged by Cedric down the left wing. The forward appears to be in distress and receives attention from the medical team.

3' The hosts have only progressed beyond the group stages of this competition on two occasions. A positive result against Arsenal here could go a long way towards them making it third time lucky this year.

1' AWAY WE GO! The referee blows his whistle and Arsenal get the ball rolling in this game.
