Arsenal 4-1 FC Basel as Lucas Perez Hattrick put Arsenal in commanding position, Gunners top Group A thanks to Lucas Perez hat-trick and Ludogrets draw with PSG with Perez-on d’etre as Lucas scores his first of three goals hattrick.
Arsenal have already qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League but they will be taking on FC Basel in the last group game on tuesday 06 December 2016. A win for Arsenal and PSG failing to get the win will ensure Arsenal as group winners and we might see Wenger putting a strong side for the last champions league game.
Arsenal finished top of Champions League Group A thanks to a Lucas Perez hat-trick and Paris St-Germain’s draw with Ludogorets Razgrad.
Needing to beat Basel and hope PSG dropped points at home, the Gunners took control through two Perez tap-ins. Perez drove in his third from the edge of the box and Alex Iwobi rolled in a fourth before Seydou Doumbia cut through for a Basel consolation.
A 2-2 draw in Paris left Arsenal top for the first time since 2011-12. Arsenal failed to make it past the last 16 that year, and have fallen at the first knockout stage in each of the past six seasons. Aside from breaking their run of second-placed group finishes, the Gunners have also gone through a group stage unbeaten for the first time since they reached the final in 2005-06.
