But Bruno Duarte leveled with an overhead kick after the Gunners failed to clear a cross into the box — the fourth game in a row in all competitions that Unai Emery's side has given up a lead. Arsenal remained top of Group F with 10 points from four games, while last-place Vitoria earned its first point of the campaign.
The unusual kick-off time of 3:50 p.m. local time on a Wednesday led to the game being played in a half-empty stadium. The match was moved from the Europa League's usual Thursday schedule to avoid having two games in the same region on the same day, which puts a strain on security resources. Vitoria's stadium is close to local rival Braga, which hosts Besiktas on Thursday.
