Video: Bukayo Saka produces amazing assist as Aubameyang lobs Arsenal into lead against Benfica

In the 20th minute of this evening’s Europa League encounter between Arsenal and Benfica, Martin Odegaard shifted the ball to Bukayo Saka and a wonderful moment soon followed.

Saka controlled the ball and created space from his man with some tidy dribbling, the 19-year-old then showed his fine ability by splitting Benfica with a drilled pass through to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Aubameyang didn’t even need a touch as he lobbed the rushing Benfica keeper with a beautiful first-time finish that was made to look effortless.
