London, England – November 30, 2023 – Arsenal secured their place in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League with a resounding 6-0 victory over RC Lens at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night. The Gunners were in complete control from start to finish, scoring six goals through six different players to seal their passage to the knockout stages in style.

A Dominant Display

Arsenal came out of the gates firing, and it took just 13 minutes for them to break the deadlock. Kai Havertz pounced on a loose ball in the box to poke home the opening goal, setting the tone for what was to come. Arsenal continued to press forward, and Gabriel Jesus doubled their lead in the 27th minute with a well-placed finish from the edge of the area.

A Goal Rush Ensues

The second half saw Arsenal continue their dominance, and they added four more goals in quick succession. Bukayo Saka made it 3-0 just two minutes after the restart with a stunning long-range strike, before Gabriel Martinelli added a fourth just a minute later with a clinical finish from close range.

Six of the Best

Martin Odegaard extended Arsenal’s lead to 5-0 in the 63rd minute with a composed penalty, before Jorginho put the finishing touches on the victory with a late spot-kick of his own to make it 6-0.

A Fitting Performance

Arsenal’s victory was a fitting performance for a team that has been in excellent form this season. The Gunners have now won four of their five Champions League group matches, and they will head into the last 16 as one of the favorites to win the competition.
