The Gunners completed their mission impossible to qualify for the
knockout stages of the Champions League for the 16th straight season. Thanks to a hat-trick from Olivier Giroud who bags man of the match for the away team.
Arsene Wenger’s side were of their best tonight in Athens, Greece. It all started minutes after Mathieu Flamini had smashed the crossbar, Giroud managed
to redirect Aaron Ramsey’s cross which snuck past the goalkeeper at the
near post. He then added his a second from Joel Cambell’s through ball before completing his recording breaking moment with a superb penalty after Olympiacos defender was penalized on a foul on Monreal.
Arsenal now join Manchester City and Chelsea FC today after Chelsea also won on a 2goal margin to reach the round of 16.
