Olivier Giroud was the Arsenal hero, as the Gunners did what many people thought was impossible, and beat Olympiakos convincingly in Athens to reach the knockout stages of the Europe’s premier competition.
Arsene Wenger’s side needed to win by a two goal margin, or a one goal margin greater then 3-2 in order to qualify from their group, and the Arsenal players delivered winning comfortably by a scoreline of 3-0.
Alexis Sanchez missed the Gunners’ famous victory in Athens, as the Chilean is nursing a hamstring injury, which will see the 26-year-old miss the next couple matches.
Mesut Ozil meanwhile, was in superb form yet again tonight, pulling the strings in the Arsenal midfield.
Hours after the full time whistle in Athens, both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez took to social media to express their delight at Arsenal’s famous victory.
