Arsenal qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League following a tricky 3-2 win over Bulgarian champions Ludogorets in Sofia on Tuesday.

Arsene Wenger’s side were made to work for their victory, and had to come from 2-0 down to seal a place in the knock-out stages with still two games of the group left to play.

Goals from Jonathan Cafu and Claudio Kesero gave the home side a surprise two-goal lead after a quarter of an hour, but Granit Xhaka pulled one back for the English side five minutes later.

Olivier Giroud’s excellent header made it 2-2 just before half-time and, while both sides went for the winner in the second half, it was Mesut Ozil’s moment of magic that sealed the win for Arsenal.
