Europa League: Boakye-Yiadom Reaches 30 Goals, Arsenal Win
Ghana striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom has bagged his 30th goal of 2017 after scoring at German side FC Köln in Thursday's Group H Europa League tie .
The 24-year old’s solitary strike was enough for Red Star Belgrade to claim their first three points with a 1-0 victory .
Boakye’s first goal of the year was a stunner against Hellas Verona for the erstwhile Latina Calcio in January.
Then 16 in 19 games to the end of the season in Serbia, for current club Red Star Belgrade.
His breathtaking form continued into this season.
He has scored 13 goals, 3 in 6 league appearances, 2 in a Ghana appearance, and 8 in 10 Europa League outings.
Away from Boakye, Theo Walcott scored twice and Olivier Giroud reached a personal milestone as Arsenal beat BATE 4-2.
Two goals from Theo Walcott, Rob Holding's first goal for the club and Olivier Giroud's 100th gave Arsene Wenger's side all three points in Belarus.
