Arsenal opened their UEFA Champions League campaign with a 2-1 win at Marseille on Wednesday. It was the Gunners' 10th straight win away from home in all competitions, a club record.
Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey scored in the second half for Arsenal, and Jordan Ayew converted a consolation penalty late on for the hosts.
The opener, from Walcott in the 63rd minute, was impressive.
There appeared to be no danger when Kieran Gibbs crossed from the left, but Marseille's Jeremy Morel misplayed his defensive header into the path of Walcott.
Walcott took advantage, scoring with a fierce volley.
Aaron Ramsey doubled Arsenal's advantage in the 84th minute, continuing his fine run of scoring form.
6 - Aaron Ramsey has now scored six goals in his last six appearances for Arsenal. Rampant.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) September 18, 2013
