Arsenal eliminated in Europa League semis to Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid is through to the Europa League final, and Arsenal’s hopes of winning the cup in order to clinch a Champions League spot next season have vanished. After a 1-1 draw in the first leg at the Emirates a week ago, it was a Diego Costa goal late in the first half that sent the Spanish team through with a 1-0 victory. Atletico will take on Marseille in the final after the French club scored an extra-time goal at Red Bull Salzburg to go through 3-2 on aggregate.

A deserved win for Diego Simeone’s team, as the manager watched the match from the stands due to suspension. But for Arsenal, it’s a defeat that really hurts, ending their goal of qualifying for the Champions League next season.

It will be a new era at Arsenal next season with Arsene Wenger stepping down, and the team is currently on track to qualify for next season’s Europa League.
