Arsenal advanced into the new round of the Europa League after a dramatic late win against Benfica, who had taken a 2-1 lead, meaning Arsenal needed two late goals to progress.
It was a rollercoaster of emotions during the game, but a brace from Aubameyang ensured Arsenal ran out 3-2 winners, despite a couple of mistakes from Dani Ceballos allowing Benfica the advantage. 2-2 wasn’t even to even take the game to extra time for Arsenal, with the away goals in play. So Aubameyang’s second goal of the night, just minutes from time, was essential.

Two of his errors led to goals. He has to thank the Arsenal players massively for sparing his blushes.
