Match facts

Arsenal

  • Arsenal and Atlético have never met in UEFA competition, though the Gunners did beat their Spanish opponents 2-1 at home in the 2009 pre-season Emirates Cup.
  • The Gunners have won only ten of their 31 UEFA competition matches against teams from Spain, losing 14. At home their record in 14 encounters is W8 D3 L3, the most recent a 2-0 defeat against Barcelona in the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg.
  • The London club have won five of their nine two-legged UEFA ties with Liga opposition but have lost each of the last three – all to Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League.
  • Arsenal have prolonged their European campaign into the spring for the 19th successive year – all under Wenger's management.

Atletico Madrid

  • Atlético's record in 27 matches against English clubs is W10 D11 L6, and they have been victorious in seven of their nine two-legged knockout contests, including each of the last three; only Derby County (1974/75 UEFA Cup) and Bolton Wanderers (2007/08 UEFA Cup) haved eliminated them. On English soil, however, they have won just twice in 12 visits, losing four times.
  • The Madrid side have drawn 1-1 on each of their last two visits to England – against Leicester City in last season's UEFA Champions League quarter-final and at Chelsea in this season's group stage, Saúl Ñíguez scoring Atlético's goal in both matches.
  • Atlético have won only four of their 14 away legs in UEFA semi-finals, the most recent success coming in London four years ago with that 3-1 second-leg win at Chelsea.

Predictions

There’s no easy road ahead for Arsenal in this semi final duel. The Gunners are a better side at home than they are away from home and may be able to tough it out in this home first leg.

But Atletico are such a difficult side to break down and get the better of, so back the Spaniards to get in the picture with a draw before returning home.

Final Score 1 - 1

We just need keep a clean sheet then we have a decent chance. Can not let these have an away goal.
