The 33-year-old goalkeeper made six saves to end the Bundesliga side’s goal-scoring run and secure Arsenal’s first clean sheet of the Champions League season.
France international Olivier Giroud came off the bench to break the deadlock in the 78th minute before Mesut Ozil sealed three points in added time at The Emirates.

The Arsenal shot stopper has kept three successive clean sheets in victories over bitter rivals Manchester United, newly-promoted Watford and German champions Bayern Munich.
