Before halftime, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, and Martin Odegaard each contributed to the scoreline. Jorginho sealed the hosts’ triumph by converting a penalty in the 86th minute.

Arsenal makes European history

Remarkably, the significant victory by the north London team secured their place in the last 16 and etched their name into the annals of history.

OptaJoe emphasized post-match that Arsenal’s 6-0 triumph marked the largest scoreline any English club has achieved against a French team in a European competition.

In response to the win, Coach Mikel Arteta commented:

“Today was the day to get it done. We did it in a beautiful way. We scored five goals against a really good side in the first half. [Then] you can become really sloppy. And there were parts of the second half with different behaviours but we stayed really focused.”
