Arsenal travel to Atletico Madrid this evening for a crunch UEFA Europa League semi-final second leg.
These teams reconvene at the Estadio Metropolitano following a first-leg 1-1 draw in London – a match in which the Spanish visitors were reduced to ten men after just ten minutes but managed to snatch a late equaliser that strengthens their bid to reach a third UEFA Europa League final.
If Arsenal are to bring the curtain down on manager Arsène Wenger’s swansong season at the final in Lyon, they must become the first visiting team to score at Atletico’s new stadium since January – a run of 11 matches in all competitions.
Arsenal and Atletico had never met in UEFA competition prior to the first leg, though the Gunners did beat their Spanish opponents 2-1 at home in the 2009 pre-season Emirates Cup.
The match will be shown live on BT Sport 2 from 7.30pm with live streaming via the BT Sport app and on BTSport.com.
