Arsenal vs Atletico Madrid- Match in numbers
Spanish giants Atletico Madrid snatched a late equalizing goal at the Emirates to hold Arsenal 1-1 in their first leg of the UEFA Europa League semi-final. Antoine Griezmann broke hearts in the 82nd minute in a game where Atletico showcased brilliant defending after being reduced to 10 men early on. Alexandre Lacazette had earlier scored for Arsenal. Here is the match in numbers.
Two-time Europa winners Atletico Madrid have not lost an away game in England in their last three European visits. They have drawn 1-1 in each of their matches in this country. The unbeaten run started against Leicester City in 2016-17 Champions League quarters, followed by a group stage game against Chelsea earlier this season.
The Frenchman scored his 17th goal of the season for Arsenal across all competitions. Lacazette now has 7 goals in last 7 matches for the Gunners. The former Lyon player also reached a landmark after netting in his 50th UEFA club competition game.
Atletico Madrid have won only one match out of their last six competitive games. Against English opponents in Europe, Atletico have won seven out of nine two-legged encounters up till now. Arsenal's record against Spanish opponents is something not promising as they have lost three two-legged ties in Europe (all against Barcelona in Champions League).
