Arsenal and slavia Praha share points

Tomas Holes’ injury-time header saw Slavia Prague earn a 1-1 draw at Arsenal in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final.

The tie had appeared destined to be heading for a goalless draw after the home side missed numerous promising openings at the Emirates.

However, with just four minutes left to play, substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang slipped Nicolas Pepe through on goal and the Ivory Coast forward kept his cool to dink the ball past the advancing Slavia No 1 Ondrej Kolar for his fourth Europa League goal of the season.

But just as Arsenal thought they had gained a slender lead heading into next Thursday night’s second leg in the Czech capital, up popped Holes to head home at the far post to burst the Gunners’ bubble.
