Arsenal’s Champions League season continued with a win against Ludogorets at the Ludogorets Arena on Tuesday.

The last 16 place was secured after Arsenal battled back from two-down to beat Ludogorets three-two in Bulgaria with a dramatic late winner.

Now the aim is to win the group ahead of Paris Saint Germain.

It might have come against the run of play but Ludogorets went ahead early on when Cafu volley in from a Wanderson freekick.

Minutes later the six-nil win secured at the Emirates a couple of weeks ago was very much forgotten when the home side doubled the lead with Cafu beating Gibbs to set up Keseru who gave Ludogorets breathing space.

Arsenal quickly reacted though with Xhaka pulling one back from just inside the area five-minutes later with the scores levelled up before half time when Giroud headed in from Aaron Ramsey cross, both returning to the starting XI.

Ospina justified his inclusion by Wenger, with the Colombian ‘keeper his Champions League option (at the moment) with him pulling off a couple of saves to deny Wanderson with Ozil scoring a brilliant winner three-minutes from time.

Here’s a round up of the Champions League action from the other matches played, with some still to take place.
