To return to the Champions League after falling behind six points in the Group Stage, Arsenal would require serious grit and determination to get there – not to mention the ability to overcome significant injuries to their midfield. Luckily, the Gunners showed all three in a dominating performance over Dinamo Zagreb that has the team just one convincing win over Olympiacos away from returning to the knockout round.
After a slow start that was reminiscent of their September defeat to Dinamo Zagreb, Arsenal finally came to life at the 30′ mark with a sensational score from Mesut Ozil.
Not to be outdone by one of the best midfielders in the Premier League, Alexis Sanchez got in on the scoring action just minutes later, bagging a goal of his own in the process.
Arsenal continued to dominate the second half and put Dinamo Zagreb away for good with a beautiful assist from Joel Campbell to Alexis Sanchez put them up 3-0 and sealed the victory.
With that win, Arsenal are just one big win over Olympiacos from securing a place in the knockout round again.
