Match : Arsenal vs Atletico Madrid Competition : UEFA Europe League Time / Date : 22:05h / 26 April 2018 Venue : Emirates Stadium
The Gunners will be keen to make home advantage count in this double legged tie as winning Europa League remains their only door to Champions League next season.Arsenal have won their last six home matches in a row. They have scored at least three goals in each of those matches.
Meantime, pressure is little on the Madrid outfit as they are guaranteed a top four positions in La Liga and their route to Champions League is clear for the coming campaign.Atletico Madrid have only won one of their last five and have failed to score in their last two. They are winless in their last four away matches, losing 3-0 most recently to Real Sociedad.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (No eligibility), Santi Cazorla (Plantar fascia), Mohamed Elneny (Malleolar injury), Henrikh Mkhitaryan (Knee injury)

Arsenal won the only previous meeting between these sides, although that was just a friendly back in 2009.
Atletico were the favourites when this draw was made but have Arsenal caught them at the perfect time? The Gunners will need to win well on Thursday as their away form has been dreadful all season.
