At the start of their quarter-final second leg of the Europa League, the Gunners were eliminated after their draw conceded at home (1-1), there is a week. But Mikel Arteta’s players quickly showered Slavia Prague’s hopes with three goals between the 18th and 24th minutes of play.
Nicolas PÃ © pÃ © first opened the scoring after a very good job from Emile Smith Rowe in the middle of the penalty box. The Ivorian, already a scorer in the first leg, scored his fifth goal in the competition this season.
Three minutes later, Alexandre Lacazette doubled the bet on a penalty obtained by Smith Rowe, again him. A goal that had already relieved the Gunners, forcing Slavia Prague to score three goals to qualify. But Bukayo Saka, in the process, gave Arsenal a little more air with a third goal in six minutes thanks to a precise low strike.
Provided they maintain this advantage, the Londoners will find in the semi-final of the competition the winner of the confrontation between Villarreal dâ ???? Unai Emery and Dinamo Zagreb.
