Arsenal beat AC Milan to reach Europa League quarterfinals

Arsenal beat AC Milan to reach Europa League quarterfinals

Lazio joined Rudi Garcia's Marseille in the last eight after a 2-0 win at Dynamo Kiev brushed off the disappointment of last week's home draw.

Arsenal made sure of their place by coming from behind to beat the Serie A side 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday.

'We would certainly want to avoid Atletico Madrid, ' said Wenger as reported by METRO.

We came out in the second half unchanged, and continued to dominate possession and the tempo of the match, and must have been frustrating our opposition who had no choice but to chase two goals from the remaining time.

"If we get Atletico Madrid we get Atletico Madrid, we have now some time to recover and prepare for it".

Dele Alli is world's best 21-year-old, says Mauricio Pochettino
Pochettino's hyperbole invited the comparison between Alli and some of the game's other stellar talents in his age bracket. The Spurs boss added: "The reality is with his crutch and boot, we need to assess him day by day and look at the reaction".


It is hard to accurately assess the Arsenal performance in the second leg of their Round of 16 tie against A.C. Milan.

The club's supporters had responded to their four successive defeats by attending fixtures in reduced numbers but the attendance against Milan, which was recorded at 58,973, was much improved.

Milan's hopes of a memorable comeback were short-lived as Welbeck converted from the penalty spot four minutes later having gone down under negligible contact from Ricardo Rodriguez.

"It was good to see a response from the team at 1-0 down. We finished the game more compact and more solid".

RB Leipzig edged into the quarter-finals as they continued their debut European season with a 3-2 aggregate win over Zenit St Petersburg, despite out-of-form Germany striker Timo Werner missing a late penalty in Russian Federation.

The Gunners eased to a comfortable win courtesy of Danny Welbeck's goals either side of half-time and Granit Xhaka's long-range strike.

The England worldwide went down in the box under the faintest contact from Ricardo Rodriguez.

Danny Welbeck sent Gianluigi Donnarumma the wrong way with his penalty kick to score a crucial equaliser for Arsenal tonight... but the decision to point to the spot looked to be a hugely questionable one.

Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso refused to blame the penalty for his side's elimination via a 5-1 aggregate scoreline, and Wenger said: "I haven't seen it again. You want to accuse English players to be divers?"

Needing two goals to advance, Milan were committing more bodies forward and Suso was just off-target before the visitors had a penalty appeal turned down when Silva was bundled over by Hector Bellerin.
