The Bulgarian side actually took a two goal lead and it was Ozil who provided Granit Xhaka with the assist which got Arsenal back in the game.
However, the 28-year-old also sent Arsenal through to the Champions League last 16 with a spectacular winner during the closing minutes of the second half.
Twitter exploded with admiration for the incredible goal. Following the game we took to social media to see how the Germany international’s goal went down with Arsenal fans.

Ozil now has scored seven goals and provided two assists in all competitions for the North London based outfit this season. The Germany international racked up a total of 20 assists last term.
Arsenal are currently top of Group A in the Champions League. The Gunners take on their biter rivals Tottenham in the Premier league this weekend.
