See who Arsenal, others are up against in Europa League semi-finals

See who Arsenal, others are up against in Europa League semi-finals

The competition is now the club's priority and striker Alexandre Lacazette has said that winning it would save Arsenal's season and could mean Wenger stays on as manager for another year.

"It is because we land at 5 o'clock and then play on Sunday morning that is the most hard".

Then, on Wednesday, Juventus came within minutes of beating Real Madrid 3-0 at the Bernabeu before a much-disputed Cristiano Ronaldo penalty sent the holders through.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have been drawn to face Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals of the Europa League. Although many fans would have wanted the second leg to be played at Anfield, after overcoming Manchester City they will hope to have a similar strong start to give them a foundation to get the final.

The English side have happy memories of the 1984 final, played in Rome's Olympic Stadium.

The Gunners led 4-1 from the first leg but were made to work hard for their passage through in the end, as the Red-Blues moved to within one goal early in the second half.

Marty York , the actor who played "Yeah-Yeah", admitted his role in " The Sandlot " has brought him enduring perks. Ham, says he wants to see Odell Beckham Jr . go to the Patriots, so he's terrible .

Not long after Jack Wilshere received treatment on the sideline after teammate Shkodran Mustafi smashed a diving header straight in his face, another Arsenal player went through the wars last night, but it was a tad more serious.

"Not only are you physically very jaded but also you are under huge pressure each time to win the game".

French giants Marseille will play Salzburg, a club backed by soft drinks giant Red Bull, in the other semi-final.

Marseille edged ahead in the tie for the first time when inspirational captain Dimitri Payet's whipped free kick was stabbed home by Florian Thauvin before halftime.

And the midfielder has earned a reward for his efforts, scooping the individual accolade ahead of RB Salzburg's Amadou Haidara, Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak and Olympique Marseille's Dimitri Payet.
