In the match that was supposed to be a dismissive walk-over for Arsenal, they had to pull off a spirited fightback to get all three points in their visit to Ludogorets.
The Gunners initially fought back from two goals down to level, but then the match looked like it would end as a stalemate. But cometh the hour, cometh Mesut Ozil.
His magical solo run and goal, inevitably, has drawn comparisons with probably the best player on the planet, Lionel Messi.
As Sky Sports has pointed out, the German has been involved in more goals than the Argentine in the last five matches, and considering the level of performances Ozil has been showing, such a comparison was long overdue.
