Arsenal were on the wrong end of a 2-1 scoreline against Dinamo Zagreb at the Maksimir stadium. The Croatian side pulled off one of the surprise results of the first round of Champions League group stage games.
Zagreb took an early lead thanks to an own goal from Oxlade Chamberlain. The Croatian side doubled their lead on 58 minutes when Fernandes found the back of the net. Second half substitute Theo Walcott gave Arsenal a glimmer of hope when he pulled one goal back on 79 minutes but it proved to be too little too late.
Özil received a rating of 6.4 from whoscored. The 26-year-old performed below his usually high standards providing just one key pass and taking one shot on target during the game. The World Cup winner maintained a passing accuracy of 78%.
