Arsenal progressed to the quarter final of the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League with a 5-1 aggregate win over AC Milan. The Gunners defeated Gattuso’s side 3-1 at the Emirates after a 2-0 win in Milan.
Danny Welbeck ended his goal drought with a brace on both sides of Granit Xhaka’s shot spilled into the net by Italy’s next big thing. The England international – recently invited for the next set of Friendly matches – won and converted a controversial penalty.
His second was a rebound header after Ramsey’s header was saved as the clock wound down.
It didn’t start well on that Thursday. First, captain of the night – Koscielny was subbed off within the 1st 10mins of the game. Chambers was decent enough. Next, Arsenal conceded with Ospina unable to keep out Cahla’s shot.
When the R16 draws were made, someone in Milan felt sorry for Arsenal. He must be sorry for his team now. They are out.
The draws were made today and Arsenal will face CSKA Moscow – Alex Iwobi vs Ahmed Musa from the Nigerian perspective.
The first leg is at the Emirates on April 5, before a return leg in Moscow a week later.
In other fixtures, RB Leipzig host Marseille, Atletico Madrid play Sporting CP while Lazio play Salzburg.
Milan out. Moscow next.
