Arsenal continued their Europa League winning streak with a slender 1-0 win at Bodo/Glimt to advance their quest for qualification to the next round.
The winning goal came after Bukayo Saka connected with impressive midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga. The winger’s toe-poked effort struck a defender before rebounding back off his chin and past the helpless goalkeeper.
The win gives Arsenal a five points gap over third-placed Bodo/Glimt. The Norwegian side has now played a game more because the Arsenal fixture against PSV Eindhoven last month was rescheduled owing to policing issues following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
The rearranged match with second-placed PSV takes place next Thursday, and a win for the host will guarantee their progression.
