Tonight’s Europa League semi-final against Atletico Madrid will be Arsene Wenger’s last chance of winning a European trophy with the north London club.
Wenger shocked the footballing world last week by disclosing his decision to step down from his Arsenal role at the end of the current season.
Diego Simeone’s side, however, will be in no mood to let Wenger bow out on a high as the Spanish capital city club side seek European redemption after two Champions League final defeats against Real Madrid.
