Arsenal ease to first-leg Europa League win at Ostersunds FK | Match Report.

DBliss Media Sport
Nacho Monreal's opener against Ostersunds FK meant he has been directly
involved in five goals in his last six games for Arsenal in all competitions


Arsenal as good as guaranteed their place in the last 16 of the Europa League with a comfortable away win over Swedish side Ostersunds FK.

Gunners left-back Nacho Monreal scored from close range when Ostersund goalkeeper Aly Keita fumbled Alex Iwobi's strike.

Then the home side's centre-back Sotirios Papagiannopoulos diverted Henrikh Mkhitaryan's cross into his own net after the Armenian seized on a loose pass.


 


Ostersund improved after the break but any revival was ended by Mesut Ozil, who made a well-timed run into the area and squeezed his shot past Keita for the third, before the hosts had a late penalty saved.

The Swedish club's English manager Graham Potter, who has led them to three promotions since 2010, could at least reflect on a bright performance from striker Saman Ghoddos.

The Iran international forced Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina into a couple of saves and led the line with pace and determination.

Arsenal host the second leg of the last-32 tie at Emirates Stadium next Thursday (20:05 GMT).
