The Arsenal vs PSG scoreline had one very curious statistic

The Champions League clash at the Emirates had plenty of drama, but was the first game in seven years to end with more goals than shots on target!

It is not likely that Arsene Wenger will be rewinding to the Arsenal-PSG game when he gets his 2016-17 end of season DVD, especially when he reads this statistic!

The Gunners looked to be heading for three points at the Emirates Stadium before Alex Iwobi headed past his own goalkeeper to see the tie end 2-2.

Iwobi's own goal was the second of the match after Marco Veratti had put the Gunners 2-1 ahead with a mistake of his own.

The pair of own goals meant the game bizarrely ended with more goals than shots on target - the first time that has happened in the Champions League since 2009.

The last game to achieve the feat was Rangers against Unirea Urziceni, which saw the Romanian side emerge as 4-1 winners as the Scottish club put two past their own goalkeeper.

Olivier Giroud gave Arsenal the lead against PSG from the penalty spot - the first shot on target all game, and coincidentally it means he has scored with nine of his last 11 shots on target for the Gunners in all competitions, having scored with just two of his 22 shots before that.
