Match facts

  • This will be Arsenal’s eighth European semi-final. Only once have they failed to reach the final (2008-09).
  • Atletico Madrid has an excellent semi-final record in this competition, winning both of their two previous last-four ties.
  • This will be the first competitive meeting between the London and Madrid outfits.
  • No team has scored more goals in the Europa League this season than the Gunners (29).


This is the game that all Arsenal fans have been waiting for. With there being little left to play for in the Premier League, winning the Europa League would be the best possible end to the Gunners’ season.

It will also be the best send-off for Arsene Wenger, who announced he will step down as manager at the end of the season. Lifting this title will earn the Frenchman his first European title and will guarantee the sixth-placed side a spot in next season’s Champions League.

Unfortunately, Atletico Madrid stands in their way. The first leg will be played in north London, with Arsenal hoping to earn a home win before traveling to Madrid. Unfortunately, Le Prof will be without Mohamed Elneny and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, though the latter could be fit in time for the return leg.

On the bright side, the Premier League club has been boosted by the return to training of Petr Cech, Jack Wilshere, Mesut Ozil, and Saeed Kolasinac. All of those men are now in the running to start Thursday’s crucial clash.

Simeone has a few key absentees for the trip to the English capital, as Atletico full backs Filipe Luis and Juanfran will miss this tie. Fortunately, Diego Costa, a striker who tormented the Gunners during his Chelsea days, made the squad despite initially being ruled out.
