Arsenal vs Atletico Madrid
Europa League semi-final, first leg
Thursday, 8.05pm BST
​Emirates Stadium

Arsenal are potentially just 180 minutes away from their third European final under Arsene Wenger, as they take on Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid tonight.

This is Wenger’s final opportunity to win European silverware for the Gunners, with the Frenchman advocating his 22-year stay, but the chance to reach another final also holds significance in Madrid.

While Atletico and Simeone won this competing in 2011-12, two defeats in the Champions League final (2013-14, 2015-16) have the left the club with unfinished business in Europe.

James Olley and James Benge will be in attendance at the Emirates Stadium tonight, and we'll bring you all the build-up, team news and action ahead of the huge match.
