Video: Mesut Ozil Humiliates 3 Players To Score Wondergoal In Champions League
Mesut Ozil is one of those few players who can make everything look graceful.
Arsenal’s Champions League tie against Ludogorets got off to the worst possible start after going 2-0 down with just 15 minutes on the clock.
But Arsene Wenger’s men produced a stunning turnaround to pick up the three points and seal qualification to the next stage of the competition.
Goals from Granit Xhaka and Olivier Giroud had got the Gunners back into the game before half-time but it was Ozil’s classy late strike after the interval that really stole the show.
The Bulgarian side had played a risky high defensive line for most of the game and Ozil had been trying to beat the offside trap for the duration.
His persistence was finally rewarded when substitute Mohamed Elneny played a simple ball over the top to allow the German through on goal.
But a simple 1v1 situation would be too easy for Ozil right?
As you can see below, the Arsenal star produced a deft little chip over Milan Borjan which initially gave time for two Ludogorets defenders to get back.
However, Ozil showed his composure to calmly negotiate them too before slotting into the open goal.

It was another display of pure class from the 28-year-old, who also provided the cross for Xhaka’s goal in the first half to start the comeback.
The match wasn’t quite the 6-0 scoreline that the reverse fixture produced but Wenger will be delighted with how his team reacted to going behind in a tricky place away from home.
The Gunners can also now afford to rest the likes of Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in the final two group games.
However, given how tough some of their draws in the last 16 have been in recent years, securing first place above Paris Saint-Germain will remain a key objective for Wenger.
