Arsenal continue their recent unbeaten run, as a Bukayo Saka assist to lacazette gave Arsenal the win I Athens.
It was Alexandre Lacazette who scored, tapping in from close range, while Mikel Arteta’s increasingly sturdy defence did their duty at the other end.
This trip to Athens provides Arsenal with their third consecutive clean sheet under Arteta’s guidance. The defenders were helped by goalkeeper Bernd Leno, and by some wasteful finishing from the home side. Yet the scoresheet shows no goals against and one in favour, and that alone makes this a job well done. Winning the Europa League could be their best hope of qualifying for next season’s Champions League and Arteta’s side are firmly in control ahead of next week’s return leg.
