New Delhi: Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil scored a superb winner as Arsenal came from 2-0 down to beat Ludogorets 3-2 in Sofia on Tuesday.

The result ensure Gunners' progression into the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.

It was Ozil who capped off his side's victory with this magical strike late in the game.

Barcelona's Lionel Messi is often seen scoring similar goals but this time it was the German's wonder strike stole the headlines as he ran from deep to complete the comeback in style.

As goalkeeper Milan Borjan ran out of the box to meet him, Ozil lifted the ball over him, sold a dummy to two scrambling defenders and coolly tapped in the winner on 88 minutes.

Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain are the two big names in Group A and both were in a position to advance to the last 16 with two games to spare.

"I told them not to panic at 2-0 down and stick to our game," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger told BT Sport after the game.
