COLOGNE – German goalkeeper Bernd Leno has to tremble with Arsenal to book his place in the Europa League final.
Arsenal are under pressure to succeed with a 1: 2 (0: 0) defeat in the semi-final first leg at FC Villarreal in the second leg (6 May). On the other hand, Arsenal’s opponent in the English Premier League, Manchester United, can continue to hope for his second victory in the “European Small Cup” after an offensive 6-2 (1-2) goals with Italy’s Roma representative.
Arsenal lost a better position early in the match before the break. Manuel Trigros (V) and Ral Albiol (29) gave the Spanish hosts an important advantage for the second comparison. Nicholas Pepe (73) retained the Leno team in the duel, which the two teams fatally ended up after being sent off, aiming to call in the race for the final on May 26 in Gdansk.
Combine with a comfortable pillow
Manchester can already plan the trip to Poland. The match winner for the English record champion was striker Edinson Cavani, who switched the gap between the first half with two goals to a 3-2 lead.
The hosts advanced through Bruno Fernandez (9th), but Roma were challenged by Lorenzo Pellegrini (15, penalty) and former Bundesliga star Eden Dzico (34). After Cavani’s goals, Fernandes (71, penalty kick), Paul Pogba (75) and Mason Greenwood (86) provided a soothing pillow for the Red Devils in the second leg.
Bundesliga players Bayer Leverkusen and TSG Hoffenheim have been the only spectators for the last sixteen years. Both teams failed at the start of the knockout stage of the Round of 32.
