Calamity Arsenal fail to reach Europa League semi-final

Arsenal suffered a 2-1 aggregate defeat on Thursday night to Atletico Madrid in the Europa League semi-final, ending Arsene Wenger’s chances of a glorious send-off.

Diego Costa scored the only goal of the second leg, ruthlessly dispatching his finish from Antoine Griezmann’s pass on the stroke of half-time at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium.

Arsenal struggled to create clear openings against Atletico’s well-drilled defence after that, slumping to a defeat which bore all the unwanted hallmarks of Wenger’s latter years in charge.
