Arsenal legends 0-0 Real Madrid legends (5-3 pens): Jens Lehmann the hero in Gunners' penalty shootout victory

Arsenal legends got their revenge over their Real Madrid with a penalty shootout victory at the Emirates.

The Gunners all-stars lost 2-1 at the Bernabeu in June – with winger Luis Boa Morte bagging the north London side’s only goal.

But they got pay back with a stubborn 0-0 draw before Jens Lehmann converted the winning penalty in a 5-3 victory.

Lehmann, who played the full 90 minutes after David Seaman pulled up in the warm ups, had been man of the match with a series of eye catching saves to deny Raul, Fernando Morientes and Alberto Rivera.

The German then pulled off a good save to block Alfonso Perez’s penalty before stepping up to crash into the top corner, after pushing Tomas Rosicky aside, to win the clash.

The defeat was Real Madrid legend’s first in 10 attempts.
