Arsenal star Mesut Ozil reflects on their 2-0 victory over Bayern Munich at The Emirates on Tuesday night
Mesut Ozil says Arsenal are back in business in the Champions League after their 2-0 victory over Bayern Munich at The Emirates on Tuesday night.
Second-half substitute Olivier Giroud broke the deadlock in the 78th minute with a close-range header, although replays appeared to suggest the ball had deflected off the France international’s hand.
With Bayern pressing for an equaliser, Ozil added a second in the fourth minute of injury time to secure three points and drag the Gunners back into contention in the group after back-to-back Champions League defeats.
And Arsenal’s club-record signing wasted no time taking to Instagram to reflect on a vital win for Arsene Wenger’s side over the Bundesliga champions in north London.
Ozil wrote on his Instagram page: “Gunners!!!! We’re back in business!!!!!! #YaGunnersYa … (ouh yaa 😉) #AFCvFCB #UCL #birthdaypresent”
Arsenal are in fourth place in Group F, just two points behind current leaders Bayern ahead of their return trip to Allianz Arena.
The north London outfit have won their last three games in all competitions.
