The enigmatic winger has played an instrumental role in guiding the Gunners from midtable status back to Premier League heavyweights.
His goal tonight came just 8 minutes into his Champions League debut. It's the Gunners first Champions League goal since 2017 — that's right, six years!
Saka's goal leaves Arsenal fans in tears
Bukayo Saka shifted to his left foot and passed to Martin Odegaard, who fired a potent shot from the box's edge. Goalkeeper Benitez could only parry the ball, allowing Saka to pounce and smash home the opening goal.
The goal put Arsenal up 1-nil at the Emirates. 12 minutes later, Saka notched his first Champions League assist for Leandro Trossard, also making his UCL debut. Trossard one-timed the strike after an impressive Arsenal build-up play. Jesus scored just before half-time to make it 3-0 in North London.
