Atletico Madrid scored one goal they needed in London, although they played with only 10 men for 80 minutes! Arsenal had more goal scoring opportunities, they led until the last ten minutes of the game, but the late strike from Griezmann might prove crucial for the outcome of this semifinal. Atletico Madrid won't change their game plan in the second leg. Goalless draw leads them to the finals, but if they score first, it will be really hard for Arsenal to get back into the game.

Arsenal played a really good match against Atletico, but they failed to convert numerous goal scoring opportunities they had. In the end, the error by Koscielny probably ruined their chances to get to the finals, a typical Arsenalesque end of the match. They will try everything in their power to beat Atletico in Spain, and they will probably have to score first in order to accomplish their goal. Latest matches: Arsenal FC
