At 2-1 we looked good to get to 2-2 and we did.

The North London club's only European semi-final tie against Spanish opposition came in the 2005/06 Champions League tournament when they defeated Villarreal.

"They are a similar kind of club to us", Atletico Madrid director Clemente Villaverde said at the draw in Nyon.

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

For example Arsenal only arrived back in London at 5am on Friday after their Europa League quarter-final against CSKA Moscow in Russian Federation and will only have 48 hours to prepare for their next league fixture away to Newcastle on Sunday.

With 19 minutes remaining Lazio still led 5-3 on aggregate but Salzburg scored three times in five insane minutes through Amadou Haidara, Hee Chan-hwang and Stefan Lainer to claim a remarkable 6-5 aggregate victory.

Atletico Madrid advanced 2-1 on aggregate against Sporting Lisbon, despite losing 1-0 in the second leg. He was substituted early in the second half.

And the midfielder has earned a reward for his efforts, scooping the individual accolade ahead of RB Salzburg's Amadou Haidara, Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak and Olympique Marseille's Dimitri Payet. "It's a big competition for us because it's our last chance to qualify for the Champions League next season".

"They scored the second and Ignashevich had a chance to score goal three, then we were a bit on the ropes".

With Arsenal langushing in 6th in the Premier League and a late charge into the top four appearing unlikely, it looks like the only route back into the Champions League for the Gunners will be through winning the Europa League final in Lyon.

Liverpool's reward for their impressive quarter-final victory over Premier League rivals Manchester City is an enticing semi-final against Barcelona's conquerors Roma.
