Well that was lucky for Arsenal. Alexis Sanchez scoring late after Ospina making some top saves and Cavani missing sitters after scoring in the first minute gave the Gunners a barely deserved point but one which could be crucial as to who tops the group.
The best thing that I can say about that first half, from an Arsenal point of view, is that the home side did not capitalise on their dominance and add to the goal scored by Cavani in the very first minute. They could and should have done, as the Gunners were second best all over the pitch.
We were slow to press and sloppy in possession and the game should have been beyond us at the break but Cavani missed two golden chances in the final minutes. The decision to leave Giroud on the bench and use Alexis through the middle was not working.
Wenger waited another 15 minutes into the second half to bring him and Granit Xhaka on though and to be fair Arsenal were playing better. Once again PSG could have finished it but the decision to go with Ospina proved inspired as the Colombian produced a string of brilliant saves to deny Cavani and Di Maria.
And with a bout 10 minutes to go Alexis was on hand to pounce and smash an equaliser after Iwobi’s shot came back off the keeper. There were chances for both sides after that and still time for Giroud and Verratti to be sent off for second yellows. That could be a huge point at the end of the group stage.
