Lethal Lacazette! Arsenal’s Champions League level attack leading Gunners back to the promised land
The France international striker scored twice before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang added a crucial third against Valencia on Thursday evening.
If Arsenal are to qualify for the Champions League next season then they will have Alexandre Lacazette to thank for it.
The former Lyon striker has shown all season long that he deserves to be among Europe’s elite, and on Thursday he moved the Gunners a step closer to regaining their place in football’s promised land.
It was Lacazette who scored the crucial away goal against Napoli to put the quarter-final to bed, and now his vital first-half double has ensured Unai Emery’s side will travel to Spain next week with a lead to protect from the first leg of their semi-final with Valencia.
