#Football: Aubameyang, Luiz Score As Arsenal Beat Rapid Vienna 2-1 In Europa League

By Chukwuka Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – David Luiz and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored within four minutes of each other to seal Arsenal a 2-1 comeback victory at Rapid Vienna.

The hosts were handed the lead in their Europa League opener six minutes after the break when Ercan Kara blocked Bernd Leno’s attempted clearance, teeing up Taxiarchis Fountas to embarrass the Arsenal goalkeeper and slot into an empty net.

Arsenal had offered little to seriously test Richard Strebinger until that point, but once they did, they found a way through with 20 minutes to go, as David Luiz nodded in Nicolas Pepe’s free-kick to level.

Within four minutes, the visitors had completed the turnaround as Hector Bellerin teed up fellow substitute Aubameyang to tap home from close range and secure Arsenal maximum points in their first Group B game.
