Video: Bukayo Saka pulls off Ozil-esque reverse pass to assist Aubameyang against Benfica

Arsenal got down to business early in their ‘home’ fixture against Benfica at the Karaiskaki Stadium in Greece on Thursday.

The Gunners currently lead the tie 2-1 after captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang found the back of the net with a cool dinked finish over Helton in Benfica goal in the first half.


As good of a goal it was from Auba, the move was all about the vision of the brilliant Bukayo Saka.

The youngster has been on another level since being moved to the right-hand side by Mikel Arteta and showed his ability once again with an Ozil-type reverse pass to find Aubameyang isolated early on.

Saka now has 12 goals/assists in 15 starts when playing as a right-winger for Arsenal.
