Former Dortmund forward Aubameyang then had a brief stint as a goalkeeper and fully embraced the opportunity by diving to make a spectacular save.
Arsenal claimed their first win of the season on Saturday by overcoming West Ham 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium.
Aubameyang started as the Gunners’ lone striker but was joined by Lacazette, who entered the fray as a half-time substitute.
Despite making an unconvincing start to the season and taking just three points from their first three games, Arsenal will be confident of beating Cardiff.
The Welsh side have yet to score in the Premier League this term and were knocked out of the Carabao Cup 3-1 at home by Norwich on Tuesday night.
Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 13 meetings with Cardiff — a run that dates back to 1961.
Mesut Ozil missed last week’s win over West Ham through illness but was back in training and seen battling Hector Bellerin for the ball.
Right back Bellerin was not surprised that the Gunners beat West Ham and he told Arsenal Media: ‘I wouldn’t describe it as relief.
‘We’ve been working hard now for the last two months, so we knew it was just a question of time.
‘We had two tough games to start after lots of changes at the club. We knew it was a question of time, a question of scoring the chances that we had.’
