Arsenal 0 Blackburn 0:
31 minutes played at The Emirates Stadium, in The Gunners' last match before their crunch Champions League first-leg encounter with German giants Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.
Manager Arsene Wenger needs to be careful his team selection, as he has a BIG match-up during midweek.... and he has rested a lot of first-team players including Wilshere, Walcott, Podolski and Cazorla.
45+1: Arsenal and Spain midfielder Mikel Arteta has a free-kick in a dangerous position from 25 yards out. He steps up to take it, hits a powerful drive towards goal..... SAVED by Kean!

16:02: The teams are out for the start of the second half... here we go..
45: Arsenal kick-off now.
47: The hosts passing the ball around well, with Czech Republic midfielder Tomas Rosicky's through ball was cleared away for an Arsenal corner.
50: End-to-end action now, with Blackburn going on the counter attack, before some defensive work from captain Thomas Vermaelen ensures the deadlock is not broken... yet.
53: Arsenal passing the ball around the pitch, with some patient build-up play. Need to test the Blackburn goalkeeper Kean though if they are to progress through to the Last 8..
