Slavia Praha vs Arsenal: Arsenal’s 1st goal was called offside
Emile Smith Rowe thought he had scored the opener after Bukayo Saka’s finesse effort hit the post and fell into his path. But, VAR took a long look at it before calling it offside.
Some sumptuous footwork from Smith Rowe served in Nicolas Pepe who displayed tremendous control to finish high into the net from close range in the 18th minute.
Unai Emery won the Europa League three times.
Then he took Arsenal to the Europa League final.
Then he was sacked by the Gunners after a Europa League game.
Of course he’ll now face his former team with his new club, Villarreal… in the Europa League. pic.twitter.com/sh8chAy1Xm

Slavia Praha vs Arsenal: It did not take Arsenal long to double their lead as Saka was brought down in the penalty box. Lacazette stepped up to take the penalty and sent the keeper the wrong way in the 21st minute.
Arsenal gained a 3-goals cushion 3 minutes later as Bukayo Saka sprinted through the Slavia defense down the right-wing. He then cut the ball into his favored right foot and drilled the ball straight into the bottom-right corner.
Arsenal will now face their ex-manager Unai Emery’s Villareal in the semi-finals.
