Arsenal scored six goals against RC Lens on November 29th, five of which came in the first half. All goals were scored by different players, with Kai Havertz scoring the first in the 13th minute.

Gabriel Jesus, Bukayo Saka, and Gabriel Martinelli scored inside the following 14 minutes. Captain Martin Odegaard closed the half with a goal of his own. Only one goal was scored in the second half, with Jorginho scoring a penalty in the 86th minute. Arsenal has qualified for the Champions League Round of 16 for the first time since 2016. They have 12 points out of a possible 15, with one loss coming on the road at Lens.
