With their dreams of European silverware still very much alive, Arsenal welcome Unai Emery’s Villarreal to the Emirates Stadium for the second leg of their Europa League semi-final on Thursday. The Yellow Submarine travel to North London boasting a 2-1 lead from the first leg, with Nicolas Pepe’s penalty giving the Gunners hope following goals from Manu Trigueros and Raul Albiol.
The Europa League novice in Mikel Arteta was undone by serial winner Emery in the first leg last week, and Villarreal should have been out of sight after a totally dominant first-half performance, but Pepe’s second-half spot-kick means that the Gunners’ season is not done and dusted just yet.
With a top-four charge in the Premier League totally out of the question, and even a late push for a top-seven finish looking increasingly unlikely, Arsenal’s hopes for a return to the continental stage rest solely on Europa League success, but they at least go into the second leg with the wind in their sails following a 2-0 victory at Newcastle United.
Arteta’s team selection against the Magpies clearly showed where his priorities lie, but Newcastle barely had a sniff as Mohamed Elneny’s first Premier League goal put the Gunners ahead, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returned with a bang to put the game to bed in the second 45. The win at St James’ Park saw Arsenal quickly snap a three-game winless run in all competitions, but their Emirates fortunes are a serious concern, as the Gunners have failed to win in five at the Emirates since their dominant North London derby victory over Tottenham Hotspur on March 14.
However, the Gunners have lost the first leg of Europa Leagues ties to BATE Borisov and Rennes since 2019, and both times they turned it around in the second leg to progress, but the mastermind of those triumphs will take his seat in the opposition dugout as his side hope to preserve their narrow advantage.
