Marseille, Arsenal and Atletico reach Europa semis as Salzburg stuns Lazio

The midfielder was forced off on a stretcher in the first half of the match but managed to complete the game. "We were in trouble in the first half but once we moved to a back five we were much more stable and didn't concede many chances".

After a quiet spell, CSKA broke the deadlock in the 38th minute when Fedor Chalov slotted home from close range after Petr Cech did brilliantly to keep out Aleksandr Golovin's header.

Arsenal have reached the semi-finals of a European competition for the first time since the 2008-09 Champions League campaign.

"You could see in Europe a lot of turnovers".

But Arsenal ended any doubt with quarter of an hour left as Welbeck played a brilliant one-two with Elneny before finishing sweetly into the corner to reduce the deficit on the night and extend their lead in the tie. We need to be focused.

"It was not the plan", said the France defender.

In a week that has seen Roma shock Barcelona and Juventus nearly beat Real Madrid in remarkable UEFA Champions League quarter-final matches, much of the pre-match talk in Russian Federation focused on the need for Arsenal to put in a professional performance to defend their 4-1 first-leg advantage. "I think we missed a bit of movement to be available for our team-mates, we didn't win the duels, so it was hard".

"We have players who can always score and once we got to 2-1 it was a big blow for them and they didn't recover".

"They played well with the ball and they had some opportunities and scored two goals".

First Amadou Haidara lashed in a shot from 25 yards, and two minutes later Hee-Chan Hwang pounced on a defensive miscue to score at the near post and put Salzburg ahead on away goals. It is important for the club to go far.

Wenger spent the pre-match build up urging his side to guard against complacency, citing the example of Barcelona's shock Champions League exit to Roma despite having a healthy first leg lead - the same as the Gunners.
