  • Arsenal face Atletico Madrid in Europa League semi-finals

Arsenal will face Atletico Madrid in the Europa League semi-finals, with Marseille paired with Red Bull Salzburg in the other last-four encounter.

The first legs will be on April 26, and the return legs on May 3.

The match-ups were decided on Friday afternoon.

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.

Alexandre Lacazette believes that winning the Europa League will "save" Arsenal's season and lead to manager Arsene Wenger staying on for another year, amid increasing speculation that the Frenchman could leave the Emirates at the end of this term.

But Simeone was delighted with his side's efforts to scrape through to the last four, as they look to reach a fifth European final in nine years.

I think the US has an obligation to lead an worldwide response to hold people accountable for that", Ryan told reporters . Asked about the risks of USA military retaliation, Mattis cited two concerns, starting with avoiding civilian casualties.


There is a lot riding on the Europa League for both sides.

Diego Simeone's side are now second in LaLiga behind runaway leaders Barcelona.

However, they were knocked out of the respected group in the Champions League and have taken the competition by storm.

Arsenal will have been looking to avoid Madrid in the semi-finals but the Gunners will take confidence from their two-goal comeback in Moscow.

The Spain global was withdrawn in the second half of the 1-0 quarter-final second-leg loss to the Portuguese side in Lisbon and was sent for further tests.

Meanwhile, Marseille progressed after dumping RB Leipzig out of the competition, winning the tie 5-3 on aggregate.
