    Yaya Sanogo

    Thanks for joining us on a night that many of us thought we'd never see.

    Yaya Sanogo has scored a goal.

    Good night.

    Arsenal's injured playmaker Mesut Ozil on Twitter: "Well-deserved win, great rematch, qualified for the round of sixteen - what a perfect evening. Superb performance, Gunners!"

    Charleschip: Tonight showed Arsenal, do know how to defend, just need to have more discipline.

    Henry Taylor-Gill: Well, we'll qualify second and get knocked out by Bayern or Real. Same old, same old Arsenal.

  4. Won't somebody think of Anderlecht?

    Anderlecht players celebrate

    Arsenal's win dumped Anderlecht out the tournament, despite the Belgians' 2-0 win over 10-man Galatasaray.

    However Chancel Mbemba's brace has ensured the Brussels side will be in the Europa League.

  7. Manager reaction

    Arsenal 2-0 Borussia Dortmund

    Arsene Wenger

    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on Sky Sports: "Overall it was a committed game.

    "Maybe we were defensively better tonight. We are a team that likes to go forward - sometimes we feel dominate the game and we maybe forget to take precautions to defend. We did that better tonight.

    "Alexis Sanchez has given unbelievable fighting spirit. A mixture of talent and desire.

    "I like what Yaya Sanogo did tonight. We went long on him. What he did on his first goal is class. Unfortunately, he got injured. Mikel Arteta doesn't look good - it's a calf. I think he will be out for a while.

    "The injuries are difficult to take on the chin. We go into many games and we need as many available."

    Mikel Arteta

    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has just been on TV saying that midfielder Mikel Arteta could be out for a while with a calf injury picked up tonight.

    Mark Lawrenson, former Liverpool defender, on 5 live

    "An awful lot of teams would love to be in Arsenal's position. Apart from Chelsea and Southampton, who can you say has played really well?

    "I'm totally convinced Arsenal will qualify for the Champions League via the Premier League again. It's just whether the people at the top think it's time for a change.

    "You'd just like the manager to put his hand up and admit he's been a bit stubborn and try to build the team from the back."

  12. Player reaction

    Arsenal 2-0 Borussia Dortmund

    Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker

    Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker on Sky Sports: "It was a solid performance, especially defensively.

    "We didn't give them too much. We were solid at the back. We have had a few disappointing results recently. That was a mental test and we are strong enough. We can continue now.

    "It's good to score an early goal but over the 90 minutes we were solid and that's the key.

    "We had to [sit down and discuss recent poor defensive performances]. After Anderlecht and Manchester United, we dropped mentally a bit. We were even stronger today. We learned form disappointments in the last weeks.

    "In the Premier League we have to prove something there. Some vital weeks are coming up."

    Match stats

    The stats tell us there wasn't much in the game - Borussia Dortmund had more possession and shots on target, while Arsenal had one shot more than the Germans.

  14. Elsewhere in Europe

    Real Madrid have sealed a 1-0 win in Basel courtesy of Cristiano Ronaldo's goal to mean that Liverpool only need to beat the Swiss side at Anfield to go through from Group B.

    Carlos Tevez wrapped up victory for Juventus in Malmo with a comfortable finish after breaching the offside trap. The Italians are in pole position to qualify from Group A with Atletico Madrid who completed a comfortable passage into the knockout stages with a 4-0 win over Olympiakos.

    Meanwhile Group C promises to be a fascinating final day with Monaco's surprise 1-0 win in Bayer Leverkusen meaning both those teams and Zenit St Petersburg can go through.

    Anderlecht's 2-0 victory over Galatasaray has become academic in Group D with both Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund qualifying.

  15. Post update

    So Arsenal are through. A victory in their final game at Galatasaray would see them top the group but only if Borussia Dortmund are beaten by Anderlecht, who have nothing to play for.

    Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain goes close for a second time. Alexis Sanchez plays a cross-field pass to the England midfielder, who takes a touch and fires in a powerful effort which flies just over.

    So if both games end now, Arsenal can still finish top of Group D if both results go their way in two weeks' time. If the Gunners beat Galatasaray in Turkey, and Borussia Dortmund lose at home to Anderlecht, Arsenal will win the group.

    If Arsenal win this game 3-0, then even a Dortmund draw on the final day would see the Gunners through if they win in Istanbul.

    It's Champions League anthem time - my wait for some legend to start singing along to it goes on sadly.

    Moments to go.

    Mick Champness: Pack your bags Lukas Podolski and join a club where the manager appreciates what you can offer. Utter joke, Wenger!

    Roger Lidher: Time for Wenger to go now. He's out of touch with reality. Talks about solidarity but has been letting the fans down for years as he won't accept his mistakes and rectify them.

    In September's opening group match, Arsenal lost 2-0 to Borussia Dortmund, with Ciro Immobile and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netting.

    Ex-Gunners striker John Hartson told BBC Radio 5 live: "They could have conceded five or six. Without overreacting, it was a really woeful defensive performance from Arsenal."

    BlueJaysGooner: Not surprised Dortmund trained in Regent's Park. Arsenal have been playing like a Sunday league team of late.

    Anisa: Wenger has lost the plot. Sa-No-Goal instead of Podolski? Monreal instead of Koscielnly? Does he even want to qualify?

    Arsene Wenger

    Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has backed boss Arsene Wenger after criticism from the club's second-largest shareholder Alisher Usmanov.

    "With what he's done for this club and for us as a group of players, every time we go in we want to work for him and get results for him," Ramsey told Sky Sports News.

    "Everybody's in it together, and we know all about our qualities. Last season we had a great year, this season we wanted to build on that and hopefully we still can."

    Ezeakum Ugochukwu: Again Wenger setting arsenal up to lose, so predictable its pathetic. Can't understand how Bellerin can't get a game.

    Mathew Brown: This Arsenal line-up tonight has no chance against Hummels and Reus and co. Oh dear, oh dear.

    "The whole thing about Arsenal for me is, Arsene Wenger inherited a strong defensive team and since the Invincibles, he's started to build his teams from front to back.

    "The best teams ever are built from back to front. You need that platform so you can take on any team and gamble in attack.

    "They don't have any leaders. I would regard myself as a fan of Arsene Wenger but he must build his team from the back next time - if he gets time to do it."

    In fact it was on a pitch more commonly used to host matches in the Camden and Regent's Park Sunday league.

    Arsene Wenger

    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has called for unity at the club despite their shaky start to the season.

    Major shareholder Alisher Usmanov suggested Wenger has been making mistakes.

    But the Frenchman said: "Everybody has the right to have an opinion, having said that, we have values at this club.

    "During the 18 years I have been here, I have shown that I can take criticism. I don't take it personally at all.

    "It is an opinion that I respect, but when you are from this club, you are from this club. You are in or out, you cannot be both."

    Arsene Wenger and Jurgen Klopp

    Both managers have predictably been asked about their opponents' problems in the league.

    Arsene Wenger says: "They had many injuries at the start of the season. Because they are a big club, the questions come very quickly - 'why do you lose?' - and then the confidence drops a little bit.

    "I don't worry too much for them in the league. I don't think they will stay where they are at the moment."

    Jurgen Klopp thinks: "I don't know whether the people here expect Arsenal to walk through the league. But the Premier League is too strong to walk through it. And if Wenger faces some pressure, then that's normal."

    Jurgen Klopp

    Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp has become one of the most sought-after - and entertaining - coaches in Europe in the past few seasons, winning the 2011 and 2012 German titles and reaching the 2013 Champions League final.

    And he has been linked to tonight's opponents, as well as Liverpool. He says he could manage in England in the future but "not now, not in the next year".

    "I don't know when," he said, while speaking English in his pre-match news conference.

    "I don't plan things like this. I've been asked 'what do you do after Borussia Dortmund?' It is possible if somebody called me then, then we could talk about it.

    "This is unfinished business with Dortmund in this moment. It is easy to feel responsible for winning games, it is much more difficult to handle this feeling now."

    Champions League table

    Arsenal's needs tonight are fairly straightforward too, which comes as a relief after the head-scratching and mini-leagues chat at BBC Sport last night.

    If the Gunners win or draw, they are in the last 16. In fact they could lose and still qualify if Anderlecht and Galatasaray draw in Brussels. That game is also happening at 19:45 GMT tonight.

    Jurgen Klopp

    But for some reason, the 2013 finalists are flying in the Champions League. They have already qualified and only need a point in north London tonight to win Group D.

    Not many people refer to Europe's premier club competition as a "holiday". But Jurgen Klopp is not 'people'.

    "When I think about the Bundesliga, this here is a little bit like a holiday for me. After all, it's only the Champions League."

    Jurgen Klopp

    Arsenal may think their Premier League campaign has gone badly so far - Arsene Wenger's side are eighth, their worst start to a season in 32 years.

    But Jurgen Klopp's Dortmund are in a relegation battle in the Bundesliga. If the season ended now they would face a relegation play-off against a second-tier side for a place in the top flight.

  130. Post update

    Struggling in their domestic league.

    Creative, attacking football not yielding results.

    A team hit by injuries.

    A legendary club manager under real pressure.

    But enough about Borussia Dortmund, tonight they visit Arsenal in the Champions League.
