[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Matchday 4]
Arsenal gained revenge for its loss at home two weeks ago with a 1-0 win at Borussia Dortmund that extended its winning streak
on the road to 15 games in all competitions and dropped last season's runner-up into third place their Champions League group with two games to play.
Dortmund was the better team until
's goal in the 62nd minute broke the deadlock, but the Gunners were in control after that.
They are now tied for the lead in Group F with
Napoli, a 3-2 winner over Marseille.
"Dortmund was the better side in the first half. But after our goal we should have scored another," Arsenal's coach Arsene Wenger
said. "Once we were in the lead, we were not so much under pressure."
Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp
believes Arsenal can
win the Champions League -- with one proviso.
"They are young, healthy and good technicians," he said. "They won a clever game tonight and could go to the final and win it -- as long as
they don't play against Bayern Munich."
The only team to clinch a berth in the round of 16 on Wednesday was Atletico Madrid though Barcelona is close with a five-point lead in Group H.
Bayern Munich and Manchester City clinched after four games on Tuesday.
