Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his seventh goal as a Barcelona player in their away win over Galatasaray in the Europa League. The former Arsenal player hit the winner to complete an impressive comeback after Galatasaray had taken the lead from the first half of the game. After playing out a goalless draw in the first leg, Brazilian defender Marco gave the hosts the lead before Spanish young star Pedri equalized with a fine individual goal.

Aubameyang then completed the come-back in the 49th-minute of the game to send Barca into Friday’s quarter-final draw. Barcelona ran down the clock, infuriating the home crowd who started throwing bottles and plastic cups onto the field and the referee stopped the game for a few minutes while the Galatasaray players tried to calm things down.
32-year-old Aubameyang joined Barcelona on a free transfer in February after four years at Arsenal and Gabon forward has been an impressive signing. The player has been doing fine since arriving on the La Liga side. Xavi’s side had dropped into the Europa League after finishing third during the group stage of the Champions League, behind Bayern Munich and Benfica.
