Europa League: Arsenal crush Ostersunds, Dortmund fight back to beat Atalanta


Arsenal have one foot in the Europa League round of 16, thanks to a commanding 3-0 win over Ostersunds on Thursday night.

Arsene Wenger was without Aaron Ramsey, Laurent Koscielny and Granit Xhaka, but still named a strong squad against the Swedish minnows.

The Gunners took the lead after the goalkeeper fumbled the ball and Nacho Monreal tapped in.

Arsenal went 2-0 up 11 minutes later, when Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s cross deflected off the back-side of defender Sotiris Papagiannopoulos into the net.

Mesut Ozil rounded off scoring, while David Ospina ensured they kept a clean sheet with a late penalty save.

On-loan Chelsea striker, Michy Batshuayi, scored twice as Borussia Dortmund came from behind to beat Atalanta 3-2.
