Saka Goal Gives Arsenal Victory Over Bodo

 With a 1-0 victory at Bodo/Glimt, Arsenal extended their winning streak in Group A of the Europa League thanks to Bukayo Saka's fourth goal of the campaign.

The Gunners currently have nine points and simply need one more win to guarantee their spot in the competition's next round.

Bodo/Glimt, who famously destroyed Jose Mourinho's Roma 6-1 last season, were attempting to record an incredible 15th straight home victory in Europe.

 They got off to a strong start but fell behind after a deft Arsenal team move. Saka's deflected shot gave the visitors the lead in the 24th minute following a move with Albert Sambi Lokonga.

Amahl Pellegrino, the club's leading scorer, was put through on goal for the hosts, but he managed to get his angles horribly wrong and miss the target just minutes later.

After the break, the Norwegian team gained momentum and had a chance to tie the score when Runar Espejord fired wide from inside the box and Ola Solbakken came near from farther out.

Even though it wasn't always pretty, Arsenal was able to grind out a victory, as they have done so frequently this season.

The Gunners are in first place in Group A after three wins, and if they can defeat PSV on Thursday, they will advance.
