Arsenal vs. Ludogorets: Score, Reaction from 2016 Champions League Match

Mesut Ozil bagged a hat-trick as Arsenal cruised to an easy 6-0 win over Ludogorets on Wednesday, continuing their fine form in the 2016-17 UEFA Champions League.

Alexis Sanchez gave the hosts the lead with a beautiful chipped goal early, and Theo Walcott doubled their advantage shortly before half-time.

A third goal by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain early in the second half all but secured the three points for the Gunners, and Ozil added three more goals to complete a fantastic night for the hosts.

As Arsenal's official Twitter account shared, manager Arsene Wenger opted to rest Petr Cech, giving David Ospina a chance in goal, while Francis Coquelin started in midfield:

The Gunners expected to dominate from start to finish, but Ludogorets started the match in positive fashion, holding their own in the midfield battle and coming away with a fair bit of possession.

Sanchez was almost picked out twice, first by Ozil and then by Hector Bellerin, and it quickly became clear the visitors' defence struggled with the pace as soon as Arsenal increased the tempo.

Walcott perhaps should have scored early but for some reason refused to pull the trigger from a promising position. Sanchez quickly erased his mistake, however, as the Chilean beat goalkeeper Vladislav Stoyanov with a delightful chip after he initially seemed to lose his momentum.
