Mesut Ozil disappoints in Arsenal's defeat to Olympiakos

Mesut Ozil

Mesut Özil played the full 90 minutes in Arsenal’s surprise 3-2 defeat at the hands of the Greek Champions Olympiakos.

Özil was unable to provide an assist or goal. The World Cup winner has yet to setup up a goal or get on the scoresheet in the Champions League this season.

The Germany international received a rating of 6.8 from whoscored for his performance on the night.

Özil took one shot on target, provided two key passes and had a pass accuracy of 83%. The 26-year-old made eight crosses, two of which were accurate.

Olympiakos strategic advisor and BT Sport pundit Christian Karembeu criticised Özil’s performance in the loss against the Greek giants.

“I am so sorry for Özil he was missing, he did not do anything,” Karembeu said on BT Sport after the Arsenal v Olmypiakos game.

“I know him from Real Madrid he was a key player there but he could not help the team today or deliver some key passes,” he added.


Özil has two goals and three assists in all competitions for the Gunners this season.

Arsenal dropped into last place in Group F following the loss and will take on Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich home and away in their next two games.
