By Richard Clarke at the Schwechat Stadium, Vienna
Arsenal may have stumbled slightly over their steps so far in this pre-season, losing to Peterborough and drawing with Barnet and Ritzing - but this was a Viennese waltz.
Dennis Bergkamp starred in the first half, scoring a cracker and unselfishly setting up Francis Jeffers to double the advantage. Arsène Wenger's second-half side eased through the gears and comfortably held on to the lead.
It was another decent work-out against a well-organised Austrian side who fielded a couple of familiar names in ex-Liverpool striker Sean Dundee and former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Petter Rudi.
Vienna looked the more lively side in the first half. Dundee flashed a shot wide and then forced Sol Campbell to hurriedly hack a clearance over his own bar.
But Arsenal swept into the ascendancy on the crest of Jermaine Pennant's penetrative runs down the right. The first in the 13th minute saw the England Under-21 international reach the byline and then pick out Bergkamp at the far post. The Dutchman met the ball sweetly on the volley but his effort flew wide.
The second, just before the half hour, saw Pennant find the same player at the near post with a low cut-back. Bergkamp dispatched the chance into the corner of the net with venom.
In between those chances, Paul Scharner dribbled through the Arsenal defence only for Stuart Taylor to repel his shot with his legs.
But buoyed up by the goal, Bergkamp took control late in the half. He cracked a close-range shot against the keeper's legs from Giovanni van Bronckhorst's fine cross.
A minute before the break, Scharner slipped as he hit a pass back to his keeper. Bergkamp stole in, flicked the ball around the keeper then slipped the ball to his right for Jeffers to tap into the empty net.
The second half tailed off as a spectacle. Arsenal's passing was crisp and they seemed well in control. They held on with relative ease.
