Arsenal 3 (Ozil 29, Sanchez 33, 69) – Dinamo Zagreb 0

Man of the Match – Mesut Ozil (Arsenal)

Arsenal secured a much required win against Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb, to keep alive their hopes of qualifying to the next round of the Champions League. Mathieu Flamini started in midfield, in place of the injured Francis Coquelin, while Costa Rican Joel Campbell got a starting berth, in place of the injured duo of Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Despite suffering a 5-1 mauling at the hands of Bayern Munich, Arsenal’s 2-0 win over the Bavarian giants gave them some hope of qualifying. They would now have to better Olympiakos’ 3-2 win at the Emirates, in the return game in Greece, in order to qualify. But, with the 3-0 win against Zagreb, they have given themselves a realistic chance.

Mesut Ozil headed the Gunners into the lead in the 29th minute to ease the nerves of the home side. 4 minutes later, Alexis Sanchez made it 2-0 and the win was sealed in the 69th minute, when Sanchez finished off a fine team move.

Jai Arsenal 🙂
