Arsenal advanced to the Europa League semi-finals after a 2-2 draw at CSKA Moscow handed Arsene Wenger’s side a 6-3 aggregate victory.
Goals from Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey helped Arsenal secure passage into the semi-finals of the Europa League with a 2-2 draw against CSKA Moscow in Thursday’s quarter-final second leg.
CSKA were looking to become just the second team to overturn a three-goal first-leg deficit in the Europa League knockout stages, and gave themselves hope when Kirill Nababkin (50) added to Fedor Chalov’s opener (39).
One more unanswered goal would have sent CSKA through, but Danny Welbeck sprung up with Arsenal’s first shot on target (75) to quell the comeback before Aaron Ramsey scored an equaliser late on (90+2) – both superbly assisted by Mohamed Elneny.
Arsenal will discover their semi-final fate on Friday morning, with Atletico Madrid, Marseille and RB Salzburg joining them in the pot.
