The Gunners have one foot in the Europa League Round of 16. 

 

On Thursday evening, Arsenal traveled to Greece to take on Olympiacos in a filled stadium, with its fans making plenty of noise from start to finish. That didn't affect the English Premier League side, though, as the team from north London was able to come away with a crucial 1-0 victory.

 

This was an even battle for the majority, but it was Arsenal which was able to come away with the late goal to win it. 

As you might expect, it was the usual standouts who helped the good guys get on top. Showcasing his brilliant speed on the Arsenal goal, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang raced down the left side of the pitch to gain control of a deep pass.

 

Then, he provided a nifty pass to Bukayo Saka, who was able to send a perfect delivery inside the box to Alexandre Lacazette. Lacazette did what he does best, putting the ball into the back of the net. The goal marked his eighth in all competitions this season. 

With the second leg of the Europa League showdown now headed to the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal is now a monster favorite to move on to the Round of 16.
