Arsenal have been held to a 1-1 draw by Atletico in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final, spoiling Arsene Wenger’s last European home match.

Šime Vrsaljko saw red inside 10 minutes for the visiting side having picked up two bookings, and Arsene Wenger’s side proceeded to dominate the entire duration.


It took until the second-half for the Gunners to break the deadlock though, with Alexandre Lacazette heading home at the far post.

Griezmann latched onto a ball over the top and although his initial shot after capitalising on poor defending from Laurent Koscielny was saved, the ball ricocheted back into his path and a second effort from close range found the roof of the net via Shkodran Mustafi.
