Photo: Ozil, Campbell celebrate Arsenal’s Olympiacos win in dressing room
Mesut Ozil was all smiles with Joel Campbell after Arsenal's 3-0 win over Olympiacos on Wednesday night
Mesut Ozil posed for a picture with Joel Campbell in the dressing room after Arsenal’s impressive 3-0 win at Olympiacos booked the Gunners’ place in the last 16 of the Champions League.
Both Ozil and Campbell were in good form as Olivier Giroud hit a brilliant hat-trick on a memorable night for the Gunners in Athens.
Arsene Wenger’s men qualified for the knockout phase as runners-up in their group behind Bayern Munich.
A clearly delighted Ozil posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account after the game and wrote: “Yaaa Gunners Yaaaa … welcome to knock-out-stage! 😊🚨🔝 #YaGunnersYa #Arsenal #UCL”
Arsenal took the lead in the 29th minute when Giroud headed home Aaron Ramsey’s cross from close range.
The France international then made it 2-0 four minutes after half-time when he coolly slotted home from close range after neat build-up play from Campbell.
Giroud then completed his hat-trick with a confidently-taken penalty after Omar Elabdellaoui was adjudged to have handled in the box.
Arsenal travel to Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
