The Mikel Arteta's team despite been impressive in the game suffered a shock 1-0 defeat with an error from their Shot stopper in the second half of the game.

The game between the two sides was very intensed with the tempo getting high as both put up classical and dazzling displays in the entertaining and fascinating show of the night.

The first half of the game was so intriguing as there was nothing to separate the two sides at half time which ended goalless.
