Arsenal FC eased into the UEFA Champions League group stage for a 16th consecutive year as a pair of Aaron Ramsey strikes ensured they completed their task against Fenerbahçe SK with minimal fuss.

Having triumphed 3-0 in Istanbul, Arsenal had an obvious assurance about them and they added to their aggregate lead through the industrious Ramsey after 25 minutes. The more effective side in dangerous areas, they faced only sporadic problems from their Turkish opponents, who fell further behind to another Ramsey effort after the break and will have to content themselves with a UEFA Europa League berth.
