At the Emirates Stadium on Thursday evening, Arsenal defeated Bodo/Glimt in a key Europa Leaguematch. The team led by Mikel Arteta put up a strong effort, and the manager would be pleased with the outcome of the game.
Arsenal failed to produce quality chances in the game’s early going, which kept them from getting out in front.
Nketiah, however, gave Arsenal the lead in the 23rd minute with a straightforward close-range goal. Four minutes later, Holding completed Fabio’s excellent pass to make things much better for Arsenal.
All three points against Bodo/Glimt were secured via goals scored by Arsenal in the first half. To complete the pandemonium, Fabio Vieira scored another goal in the 84th minute.
Gabriel Jesus was the architect of Vieira’s goal as he dances past Bodo/Glimt defenders before setting the ball up for the Portuguese midfielder.
Gabriel Jesus caused great problem for the opposition when he was introduced in the second half.
The Brazilian forward is making it very difficult for opposition defenders to play against him so far this season. Gabriel Jesus isn’t the most prolific striker in Europe, but his ability to skip past defenders with ease is one admirable trait in his game.
Gabriel Jesus has completed 8 take-ons inside the opposition box this season, more than any other player in top-five European league including the Uefa Europa League and Uefa Champions League competition.
