Not only did Olivier Giroud score his first hattrick for Arsenal against Olympiacos to put us through to the knock-out stages of the Champions League, he also surpassed Dennis Bergkamp’s tally.
The Frenchman was on fine form in our final game of the Champions League group stages and managed to score his eighth goal of the competition – more than the legend that is the Flying Dutchman.
The striker has proven all his critics wrong since overcoming his blip near the beginning of the season and his performance against Olympiacos sums up how he’s been playing recently.
A great performance and well deserved hattrick.
8 – Olivier Giroud has now scored more Champions League goals for Arsenal than Dennis Bergkamp. Proven.
