LONDON (AP) -- Borrusia Dortmund forward Robert Lewandowski scored a late clincher in a 2-1 win at Arsenal in Group F of the Champions League on Tuesday.

Lewandowski met a cross from right back Kevin Grosskreutz to side-foot past Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny at the far post in the 82nd minute.

The visitors scored first when Henrikh Mkhitaryan drove in a low shot in the 16th that beat Szczesny after Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey lost possession.

Arsenal equalized in the 41st when Olivier Giroud fired the ball into an empty net from a yard out after a cross from Bacary Sagna caused confusion in the box. The ball deflected off Weidenfeller's torso and looped up perfectly for Giroud.

Both teams have six points after three matches in Group F.
