Arsenal vs Atletico in Europa semis

StoriesArsenal's Mesut Ozil 'honoured' after baby in India is named after him

Well, as luck would have it, the Gunners were pitted up against Atletico Madrid in the semi-final draw which was held on Friday afternoon.

Ultimately, the victor of this season's Europa League will qualify for next season's UEFA Champions League.

Arsenal are not only hoping to win a first European trophy since 1994, but know their hopes of qualifying for next year's Champions League depend on winning the Europa League in the French city of Lyon next month.

Marseille have already played Salzburg this season - back in the UEFA Europa League group stage, when OM lost 1-0 in Austria before playing out a 0-0 draw at the VĂ©lodrome in the reverse fixture.

They overturned a 1-0 first-leg deficit against RB Leipzig in the quarter-finals to prevail 5-2 in the return date and keep their dreams alive.
