Salzburg stun Lazio as Marseille, Arsenal and Atletico reach Europa semis

Henrikh Mkhitaryan suffered a knee ligament injury during last week's match with CSKA

A 2-2 draw against CSKA Moscow in Russian Federation on Thursday allowed Arsenal to advance 6-2 on aggregate as they seek a return to the Champions League.

Arsenal need to win the Europa League to secure a place in next season's Champions League given the Gunners are 13 points behind Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspur with eight games to play.

Aaron Ramsey then scored in injury time to earn Arsenal a 2-2 draw on the night, and a 6-3 victory on aggregate.

Arsenal were at serious risk of going out on away goals as CSKA Moscow pushed forward, but a Danny Welbeck goal 15 minutes from time eased any Gunners worries.

In recent years Gunners fans have been devoid of watching their side being on the cusp of glory in Europe, the Europa League might be the Champions League's unloved cousin, but for so many it represents their best chance of hoisting a European title.

Trailing 4-2 from the first leg, the Austrian champions went 1-0 behind against Lazio in Thursday's second leg at the Red Bull Arena after Ciro Immobile's 55th-minute goal.

The striker has bailed his team out for two games running and it was his emphatic finish from a precise Mohamed Elneny through ball which ended the siege on Arsenal's goal.

Moscow are hardly world beaters, and with the likes of Atletico Madrid and Antoine Griezmann still left in the draw, you wonder whether Arsenal's defence is strong enough to take them all the way.

"Maybe we were a bit surprised by the intensity of the game and were not at the races, in the first half especially", he told BT Sport.

"From here on in all games are tough, against great opponents and the draw decided we'd face Arsenal, so we welcome it", Villaverde said, quoted by www.uefa.com.

The opening goal came after just two minutes played as the visitors, who led 1-0 from the first leg, took control of the tie. "We found our feet and deserved to score at the end".

Cech also revealed that Wenger has not spoken to him or David Ospina about who will play in goal for the remainder of the competition. They have the quality to hurt teams, but in the semi-final they won't get away with the mistakes they have been making.

On the other side of the draw to Arsenal and Atletico, Marseille will have their sights set on a final outing on French soil. RB Salzburg fought tooth and nail, scoring 3 goals in four minutes to push themselves past Lazio, while Marseille scored five goals to make sure they made it to the semi-finals.
