Final group league position: 3rd

Comments:

Final group league position: 2nd Arsenal needed to win this game by a two-goal margin to qualify for the knock-out stages for the 16th season in a row. Olivier Giroud became the second player to score a hat-trick for the Gunners in an away game in the Champions League after Thierry Henry (at AS Roma on 27 November 2002).
