Arsenal had a comfortable 4-0 win against Slavia Prague in the Czech republic yesterday despite the pressure they had to endure.

Goals from Lacazette, Saka and Pepe gave Arsenal a three goal lead as early as the 24th minute, Lacazette eventually got a second goal for himself in the second half.

On aggregate Arsenal won 5-1 to set up an exciting semifinal clash with Spanish side Villarreal. Villarreal progressed with an aggregate score of 3-1 against Dinamo Zagreb.

It will be an interesting fixture because Villarreal are coached by former Arsenal boss Unai Emery, both sides will have a point to prove in this encounter.

This will be Arsenal’s third Europa League semifinal in four seasons. In 2017/18 Atletico Madrid knocked Arsenal out at this stage, the following season Arsenal went past this stage but came short in the finals.

The first leg will be played in Spain on 29 April, the second leg will be played a week later in at Emirates stadium on 6 May.
