Arsenal defeated Zurich to start their Europa League season.
After 16 minutes, Arsenal took the lead when Marquinhos, making his debut, converted Eddie Nketiah’s cutback.
Mirlind Kryeziu’s penalty, however, gave Zurich the advantage before the break after Nketiah fouled Ola Selnaes.
In the second half, Nketiah gave Arsenal the advantage again by converting a cross from Marquinho at the far post. Next Thursday, Mikel Arteta’s team plays PSV Eindhoven in their second Europa League match.
