WATCH: Mesut Ozil’s mesmerizing goal gives Arsenal win

Out of all the great action in the Champions League, the best came at the end of the Ludogorets/Arsenal game. After setting up Arsenal’s first goal, Mesut Ozil’s greatest masterpiece was an 88th minute strike that took a possible upset away from the Bulgarian champs and sealed Arsenal’s place in the Champions League Knockout Stage.

After going 1v1 with goalkeeper Milan Borjan, Ozil flicked the ball over him, got into the box, kept patient and then struck on the open look with his left foot to cement a goal of the year candidate.
