√Ėstersunds FK 0 ‚Äď 3 Arsenal ‚Äď Arsenal claim healthy first-leg lead at Ostersunds FK as Arsenal take a 3-0 lead going into the second leg at the Emirates next Thursday.
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‚Äôs strike.
Nacho Monreal‚Äôs opener against Ostersunds FK meant he has been directly involved in five goals in his last six games for Arsenal in all competitions.
Then the home side‚Äôs centre-back Sotirios Papagiannopoulos diverted Henrikh Mkhitaryan‚Äôs 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.
