Arsenal scored four at Basel to top Group A.

The only real shot Arsenal had at topping Group A is getting a victory in their final group match at Basel, so they did.

Lyon                                                  0-0                  Sevilla

Lyon needed to beat Sevilla by two or more goals to get to the knockout stage of the UEFA Champions League while Sevilla was fine with a draw.
