DORTMUND, Germany — Borussia Dortmund strikers Ciro Immobile and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored either side of halftime to give their side a 2-0 with over Arsenal on Tuesday, kick starting the German side's Champions League campaign in Group D.

Immobile, signed from Torino in the offseason, sprinted almost half the length of the pitch and held off Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny before dispatching a low shot inside the far post just before the break.

Aubameyang scored three minutes into the second half, taking it past Arsenal 'keeper Wojciech Szczesny and guiding it into the net.

It was Dortmund's first home win over Arsenal — the sides have met three times in four seasons — since a 2-1 win in October 2002.

Galatasaray drew 1-1 at home to Anderlecht in the other Group D game.
