Europa League: Arsenal To Face Atletico Madrid

Arsenal have been handed a semi-final clash against Atletico Madrid in the Europa League. The meeting will be the first competitive clash between the sides.

Arsene Wenger’s side put in a nervy showing against CSKA Moscow in their last outing, with two late goals required in Russia to put that encounter to bed. They won 6-3 on aggregate, but the victory did not come easy.

Diego Simeone’s team also endured a stumble in the second leg of their quarter-final, as they eventually edged out Portuguese side Sporting 2-1 on aggregate, but boast the firepower to trouble the best in the business.

In the other side of the draw, Marseille will face Red Bull Salzburg who edged Serie A heavyweights, Lazio, after a 4-1 victory on Thursday to scale through to the semi-final.
