A victory always makes everything so much better, so the mistake from Dani Ceballos tonight should be forgotten about fairly quickly.
He allowed Benfica to go 2-1 up tonight as a short header back to the keeper allowed the striker to go round the keeper and score, but it was also needless and a case of trying to be too clever and it looked like it would cost The Gunners.
At that point it gave Benfica the lead and the advantage on away goals so Mikel Arteta’s men had to score two goals, but they managed to pull it out of the bag after a late goal from Aubameyang.

The Spaniard was quick to apologise after the game and you can sense the relief in his tweet, while he also makes a point of thanking his teammate for bailing him out tonight:
????????? This is football and you can always learn and make up for your errors! ? Up to the next round! Thank goodness?! Let's go Gunners! Thanks @Aubameyang7 ??@Arsenal #EuropaLeague #VamosGunners #NextRound #ArsenalVsBenfica pic.twitter.com/VLbg0JCR6x

Hopefully he learns from the mistake and doesn’t dwell on a poor performance, while it appears the fans are seeing the funny side of his error because of the late heroics from the team.
