Video: Aubameyang’s winner as Arsenal come back from death to qualify

Arsenal have accomplished the unexpected after they moved to come back from behind in the second-half.

The Gunners looked dead and buried as the Portuguese giants moved 2-1 up in the second half, meaning that they were not only 3-2 down over the 180-minute tie, but even another goal would mean they were to be eliminated on away goals.

Tierney scored the goal to level the tie, but in the 87th minute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang popped up again to seal our place in the next round.

What an amazing European night, and one which won’t be forgotten in a hurry, but hopefully we will be having many more celebrations to enjoy as the rest of the competition runs on.

  1. Did anyone else notice that our players did not know where to mark or stand. They lookef lost and that is down to the manager.
    We dodged a bullet tonight but can’t keep riding our luck like this.
    Tierney and Sara made the difference for us.

  2. Wow that was another real hard watch. First of all im ecstatic we got through and massively relieved. What has to be said is this style of football we are playing is really hard work to watch and is going to take this club nowhere. It was a game that we should have gone through comfortably or at least this tie but our negative, safety first policy and slow style of play is so restrictive and anti football its dangerous. We not for the first time made a simple task far far harder than it should have been. I cant for the life of me see why Arteta wants to play so negative football for the sake of possession, when all it does is restrict our players and makes our task far harder than it needs to be. Teams are not having to do anything to score against us or beat us, they just have to wait while we strangle ourselves in our own style. It has to be said that this football team are going nowhere fast, unless they change radically, which i doubt very much they will. Tonight and this tie is a symptom of why we are falling off our perch.

  3. Sure Arsenal will not win UEL trophy this season. Next opponent knows how to stop Arsenal from score goal. Aubameyang is the key.
