After Arsenal Lost and Qualified, See The Team They Will Face Next in The League

The Gunners limped into the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals despite falling to a meek 2nd-leg home loss to Greek Giants, Olympiacos on Thursday evening.

Arsenal’ 3-1 first-leg victory away from home meant they were big favourites to progress the last 8 of the UEFA Europa League, and that result proved key as Mikel Arteta’s men were well beneath their best at the Emirates.

Youssef El Arabi should have netted in the first period after racing onto a routine goal kick in behind the Gunners backline, but German goalie Bernd Leno made a top save to stop him.

Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang then wasted a glorious opportunity at the other end as the first period ended 0-0 but the Greek side, Olympiacos were ahead soon, minutes into the second half.

El Arabi made amends for his earlier miss as he scored with a deflected goal after fifty one minutes.

The Greek outfit tried to find the 2 extra goals they needed on the evening, but lacked the quality to unsettle the Gunners after that - and Ousseynou Ba’s late red card for dissent made things more easy for Arsenal

Mikel Arteta will be far from delighted with the result on the evening, but the Gunners are in the hat for Friday’s quarter-final draw.
