Arsenal face Atletico Madrid in Europa League semi-final

Lacazette and Wilshere are likely to start tonight’s second leg

The semi-final matches will be played on April 26 and May 3, while final will be held on May 16 at Stade de Lyon in France.

A 2-2 draw against CSKA Moscow in Russian Federation on Thursday allowed Arsenal to advance 6-3 on aggregate as they the automatic Champions League qualification granted to the victor of the competition.

Arsenal were handed the toughest Europa League draw possible when they landed Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals.

"Everybody speaks about Atletico Madrid that they look the strongest team on paper", he said, but he also described Marseille as a hard place to go. "I am from France and Marseille are in there as well and that is always a hard place to go... maybe it is better that I don't wish for anybody". "I am from France and Marseille are in there as well and that is always a hard place to go. maybe it is better that I don't wish for anybody".

"Arsenal are a great team, they're up there every year fighting for trophies and getting deep into their European competitions", he said.

Alexandre Lacazette believes that winning the Europa League will "save" Arsenal's season and could lead to Arsène Wenger staying on for another year.

Marseille overcame a first-leg deficit to beat German side Leipzig 5-3 over two legs in their quarter-final, while 1994 finalists Salzburg produced the shock result of the night by defeating Italian side Lazio 4-1 at home to win 6-5 on aggregate. "It is a very open tie at 50/50 over two legs, which could be very different".

But Benitez does not think it will be a problem for the visitors, adding: "Normally, if your team is travelling, you will say, 'We will be a little bit exhausted.' The other manager will say, 'No.' I have experience of both sides". We must play both games very seriously and work very hard.
