Darth Vader, Spiderman and Ironman came out for the Copa Argentina clash and helped seal a shock result against Wengers' namesakes

If Antonio Conte needs any pointers on how to beat Arsenal in this week's FA Cup final, he could do worse than look towards Argentina - where their namesakes endured a humiliating defeat at the hands of Sacachispas' masked superheroes!

Arsenal de Sarandi, currently fighting against relegation from the Primera Division, were paired up against fourth-tier Sacachispas in their first Copa Argentina clash of the year.

And to set the tone, the team from Buenos Aires' Villa Soldati neighbourhood came out for kick off clad in superhero masks, with everyone from Darth Vader to Spiderman on display. 

The gambit seemed to work, as Arsenal were held 1-1 in the last-64 game played on neutral territory in the Estadio Ciudad de Caseros. 

Franco Fragapane gave the Primera club the lead, before Julio Serrano tied up the game for Sacachispas 77 minutes in to force a penalty shoot-out. 

There, Arsenal's nerve failed them as their rivals from the Primera C Metropolitana triumphed 6-5 to mark a feat worthy of Superman, Ironman and the Joker rolled into one.
