Bengaluru, May 6: Arsenal and Villarreal meet in the second leg of the Europa League semi-final at the Emirates Stadium in London on Thursday (May 6).
In last week's first leg, Mikel Arteta's Arsenal lost the tie 1-2, but scored a crucial away goal despite going down to ten men against Villarreal, who are managed by their former boss Unai Emery.
First-half goals from Manu Trigueros and Raul Albiol put Villarreal firmly in the driving seat in Spain, and when Dani Ceballos picked up his second yellow card 12 minutes into the second half Arsenal had their task cut out.
However, the Gunners dug in and replied through a Nicolas Pepe penalty which was won by Bukayo Saka before former Spurs star now at Villarreal, Etienne Capoue's red card meant the game ended ten vs ten.
