Europa League: Arsenal boss wants to avoid Atletico Madrid

Europa League: Arsenal boss wants to avoid Atletico Madrid

Speaking after Arsenal's 3-1 Europa League second-leg victory over Milan, which saw the Gunners into the quarter-finals, Wilshere maintained he never doubted he could achieve his ambitions.

Hakan Calhanoglu's long-range striker had given Milan a 1-0 lead on the night going into half-time, but the England global striker went down in the opposition's area under minimal contact from Swiss defender Ricardo Rodriguez to earn a spot-kick before the break - before dispatching the opportunity to bring the hosts level.

Welbeck, named in England's squad earlier in the day for this month's friendlies against the Netherlands and Italy, leveled for Arsenal from the penalty spot.

Arsene Wenger thinks Atletico Madrid are the favourites to win the Europa LeagueArsene Wenger would like Arsenal to avoid drawing Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals of the Europa League, saying Diego Simeone's side are the favourites to win the competition this year.

The penalty was arguably the decisive moment of the night, but Wenger had yet to watch the incident back when he spoke to BT Sport after the game.

But two goals in five minutes swung the tie in CSKA's favour, as Ahmed Musa struck on the hour mark and Pontus Wernbloom made it 3-2 on aggregate. "I will give him (Welbeck) my honest feeling about it as well, don't worry", he said.

Leipzig took control at Zenit as Jean-Kevin Augustin's low shot gave them a 22nd-minute lead.

When Ricardo Rodriguez slipped the ball inside to Calhanoglu, the Arsenal defence backed off just long enough for the Turkey midfielder to rifle a blistering 25-yard strike past David Ospina.

The Russian away side wiped out Lyon's first-leg one-goal lead before half-time through Aleksandr Golovin, although Maxwel Cornet equalised for Bruno Genesio's hosts.

The Gunners went into the game with a healthy 2-0 advantage following an impressive win at the San Siro a week ago.

But there were far fewer empty seats in the 60,000-capacity arena and more vibrant mood undoubtedly helped Arsenal maintain their momentum. Xhaka's long-range effort should have simple for Donnarumma, but instead he somehow pushed the ball into his own net.
