Arsenal To Face Atlético Madrid In Semi-Finals Of The Europa League


Arsenal will face Atlético Madrid in the semi-finals of the Europa League after surviving a scare to come from two goals down to draw 2-2 against CSKA Moscow on Thursday night. It will be a first European semi-final in nine years for Arsène Wenger’s side, who will play the first leg at the Emirates on 26 April before the return leg on 3 May. Marseille and Salzburg were paired together in the other semi-final. See the fixtures below…

The competition remains Arsenal’s salvation this season, partly because it represents their only chance of winning silverware but also due to the fact that it is their only realistic opportunity of qualifying for the Champions League given their poor domestic form. Arsenal are currently sixth in the Premier League, 13 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Who do you predict will come out victorious – Arsenal or Athletico Madrid?
