Atletico Madrid v Arsenal Europa League semi-final second leg preview 0

Posted on May 02, 2018 by David Nugent

On Thursday night, Arsenal travel to Atletico Madrid for their Europa League semi-final second leg tie. The Gunners face a big task at the Wanda Metropolitano after the first leg finished 1-1 at the Emirates Stadium.

Atletico Madrid’s recent form has been inconsistent of late, as Diego Simeone’s side have won just one of their last four games in all competitions. However, that is as far as the positive go in terms of Arsenal turning this tie around.

Los Rojiblancos have won ten of their last 11 home games in all competitions. Rather dauntingly for the Gunners, Atletico have kept clean sheets in their last 11 games in all competitions at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Arsenal headed into Sunday afternoon’s game against Manchester United at Old Trafford with a weakened side. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger fielded a mixture of young and fringe players in the clash.

The team from north London actually produced a decent display. They were unfortunate to lose 2-1 courtesy of a stoppage-time Marouane Fellaini winner. Despite the positive performance, the game saw Arsenal suffer yet another away defeat in the Premier League. The Gunners away record this season is a woeful one.

On Sunday, Arsenal travels to Manchester United’s Old Trafford, as the Gunners attempt to end a terrible run of form on their travels in the Premier League.

Manchester United heads into this clash second in the top-flight table, three points clear of Liverpool in third with a game on the Merseysiders. Jose Mourinho’s team have been in good form of late in the league winning six of their last seven games in the top-flight, while also finding the net twice or more in all six of the victories.

In terms of results, Arsenal’s 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid at the Emirates Stadium in the Europa League semi-final first leg was not the worst in the world.

However, the result does not tell the whole story. It does not tell how Arsenal dominated the game. It also does not tell how the Gunners played against Atletico for over 80 minutes of the game. Overall, the draw is a missed opportunity considering the circumstances.

Arsenal fail to beat ten-man Atletico 0

Posted on April 26, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal could only muster a 1-1 draw against ten-man Atletico Madrid at the Emirates Stadium in the Europa League semi-final first leg, despite playing against ten men for over 80 minutes.

The Gunners had the first chance of the game on six minutes, as Alexandre Lacazette volleyed just wide of goal after good work from Danny Welbeck. Lacazette saw a header palmed away by Jan Oblak soon afterwards.

On ten minutes, Atletico were reduced to ten minutes as full-back Sime Vrsaljko received a second booking for a late challenge on Lacazette. Four minutes later Diego Simeone was sent to the stands after protesting one of the official’s decisions.

On Thursday night, Arsenal host Spanish club Atletico Madrid at the Emirates Stadium in the Europa League semi-final first leg.

Arsenal heads into this game on the back of a 4-1 home win over West Ham. It was the story of the Gunners season, as they dominated the home game, but on their travels, Arsene Wenger’s team have been woeful.

However, the team from north London have a strong record in the Europa League, winning eight of their last 12 games in Europe’s secondary competition. The Gunners have also won three of their last four European games, while also scoring at least two goals in their last four games in Europe.

The news comes after weeks and months of speculation regarding his future, with the Frenchman finally giving fans the news that they’ve been waiting oh so long to hear.

Throughout the course of his historic tenure at Highbury and then the Emirates, Wenger managed to accomplish some truly remarkable things with the club.

Arsenal Football Club have confirmed they will subsidise tickets for the Europa League semi-final second leg away at Atletico Madrid.

Mark Brindle, the Arsenal supporters’ liaison officer, said the club are aware the trip to Madrid was always going to be expensive for the fans as the early May Bank Holiday increases travel expenses.
