Arsenal appear to have blown their best chance of winning the Europa League and one last major trophy under Arsene Wenger, but can they be written off?

Arsenal must win away against Atletico Madrid to take legendary, retiring Manager Arsene Wenger to his first Europa League final - here's how to watch a live stream. HOW IT CAN BE DONEFast forward 12 years and Arsenal will need more of the same if they are to silence the Wanda and progress to their third European final under Wenger.

Arsenal's Premier League hopes have been undermined by travel sickness this season, but they have been successful on the road in Europe.

Elsewhere tonight, Marseille take a 2-nil lead to Salzburg in the other last four tie.

Wenger recently announced that he will be stepping down as manager at the end of the season and Simeone has been touted as a possible candidate to replace the Frenchman.

Atletico Madrid: Oblak; Thomas, Godin, Savic, Hernandez; Koke, Gabi, Saul, Correa; Costa, Griezmann. "At the moment I would just like to finish my job".

"I think Aaron has been the most consistent midfielder this season".

Wenger's pending departure can not be disregarded as Arsenal bid to give their manager a glorious send-off. "Will they in the opposite have a more cautious approach and try to get us on the break, that's what we have to deal with in the game", added Wenger. Every game is a new adventure, that's why the excitement is the same. But with a 1-1 aggregate score after the first leg at the Emirates, Arsenal must score at least once to have a chance at victory on the road.

Atletico Madrid v Arsenal, Europa League semi-final second leg, May 3, kick-off 20:05. I believe we come to a place with a good history in Europe but we know exactly what we need to do.

"Things can change so fast in football so we don't have to lower our guard, we know we have world class players but Arsenal has also world class players so it will all come down to the determined team so we will be ready for them for another battle".
