Europa Semis: Griezman Breaks Arsenal’s Heart With Late Equaliser

Marseille Beat Salzburg, 2-0

With 10-men after defender Sime Vrsaiko was sent off in the first ten minutes of the game, Atletico Madrid was able to make Arsenal see red before home crowd at Emirates as Antoine Griezmann drew level with an 82 minute goal to cancel Alexandre Lacazette’s 61 minutes goal, thus confirming departing Wenger’s fears of meeting the Spanish crack team at even the quarter final stage draw. The away goal is a big decider already even before the return leg is played next Thursday in Spain.

In another encounter, Florian Thauvin and Clinton Njie, Cameroon winger, scored Marseille’s two goals to beat Red Bull Salzburg 2-0 in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final at Stade Velodrome.
