Mesut Ozil with a cheeky back-heel nutmeg against Rennes in Europa league!
Mesut Ozil cheeky back-heel nutmeg as Arsenal knocked out Rennes.
The first match ended with a 3-1 win for Rennes, which was a big surprise. Arsenal needed to win the return leg with at least a 2-0 score, which seemed difficult but not impossible.
Arsenal beat Rennes 3-0 at home which meant that Arsenal progressed to the next round while Rennes had to go home.
It was a deserved win for Arsenal, who won thanks to Aubameyang’s superior performance.
Auba scored two goals and made one assist.
After scoring his second goal, he made a famous ‘Wakanda forever’ celebration. If you watched Marvel’s Black Panther than you will know what kind of celebration Auba did.
Ozil had a quiet night considering his standards, but he still made one cheeky back-heel nutmeg on one poor Rennes’ player.
Ozil was being covered near the sideline. He used his German-Turkish wits and used his back-heel to put the ball between the legs of a Rennes’ player that was covering him.
Cool skill from Ozil that didn’t affect this match, but it was still cool to see it.
Arsenal are through to the next round and they will find out their next opponent in today’s draw.
