In the first leg, Lens played extremely well to make Arsenal hate them. However, that was not shown at all when the two sides met in the second leg.

Arsenal, determined to win tickets to the next round soon, created an explosive first half against Lens. At minute 13, the “Gunners” made the opponent’s net vibrate. Havertz scored with an easy finish in front of the goalkeeper.

At minute 21, it was Jesus’ turn to fill in his name on the electronic board. The Brazilian star handled the ball very classily to eliminate the opponent, then shot a dangerous cross-angle shot to increase the score to 2-0 for coach Arteta’s team.

Arsenal is both good and luckier than Lens. In the 23rd minute, Saka scored without actively receiving the ball. That situation saw goalkeeper Samba push the ball away after Martinelli’s shot, the ball bounced straight at Saka and rolled into Lens’ net.

Conceding 3 times was too easy, Lens really collapsed. This team’s goal was wide open for Arsenal to continuously create opportunities. In the 27th minute, Martinelli had a classy dribble and finish, giving Arsenal a 4-0 lead.



Before the first half ended, Arsenal made Lens resentful again. Odegaard easily volleyed the goal after receiving a clear cross from Tomiyasu.

Entering the second half, Arsenal significantly reduced the pace of attack. But that did not help Lens have a chance to find an honorable table. The reason is because the morale of Lens players is seriously low.

Arsenal played leisurely but the goals continued to come to them. In the 86th minute, substitute Jorginho successfully scored a penalty, giving the “Gunners” a 6-0 lead. Before that, Khusanov let the ball touch his hand in the penalty area.



This is also the last goal of this match. In the end, Arsenal defeated Lens with an impressive score of 6-0 to soon qualify for the group stage of the C1 Cup.

With 9 points earned after the first 4 matches, although Arsenal has not officially passed the group stage, their opportunity to continue is very bright. The 4-point gap between Arsenal and PSV and Lens – the two teams ranked 2nd and 3rd in Group B, allows the Gunners to enter the next match with a comfortable mindset.

Not to mention winning, just a draw is enough for Arsenal to qualify for the knock-out round of Europe’s most prestigious club tournament. This is not a very complicated task if you look at what Arsenal is showing. By just defeating Brentford with the minimum score in the Premier League, the North London representative increased their consecutive winning streak to 3.



Unlike Arsenal, who is leading in both the Premier League and the Champions League, Lens appears to be unstable, only winning 3 in the past 8 matches. In the first leg, Lens excellently came back to win 2-1 against Arsenal. However, the above scenario is unlikely to be repeated in the rematch when Arsenal plays at their home base, where they are maintaining a streak of 12 consecutive unbeaten matches. In these 12 matches, Arsenal won 10 times (including the penalty shootout).
