Europa League Wrap: Arsenal, Atletico And Lazio Earn Advantage

Antoine Griezmann

"I'm going to continue at Atletico", he told reports after his side's Europa League win over Sporting Lisbon.

Arsenal quickly ended any doubt over the contest on the field as Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette both scored twice in the first half to surely put the tie out of CKSA's reach.

Diego Simeone's side saw out the game from there, and will expect to complete progress to the last four in next Thursday's second leg in the Portuguese capital - especially as Sporting's Fabio Coentrao and Bas Dost are now suspended.

In the same vein, Italian club Lazio and Spain's Atletico Madrid won the first leg of their UEFA Europa League quarter-final matches on Thursday.

Germany forward Mesut Ozil also shone as Arsenal's crisp one-touch passing repeatedly carving open a cumbersome Russian defence.

"I'm very happy about that".

Phil the Thrill, even when not in contention
Patrick Reed's birdies keep coming in bunches. "I think it's going to be a lot more attitude tomorrow than anything". Woods opened with a bogey and took double bogey at the fifth, his approach soaring over the green into dense brush.

Ex-Chelsea striker Diego Costa took advantage of a defensive mistake seconds into the game to set Koke up.

"I think we have done enough of a job tonight, there was a good pace in the first half, the two teams gave everything which is why is was such a spectacular first half", he said. This time, it was Mathieu's failure to cut off a pass from Saul Ñiguez that left the ball to Antoine Griezmann, who outran three Sporting players to score in the 40th minute.

Takumi Minamino made it 2-2 as adventurous Salzburg looked like causing an upset before Anderson and Immobile struck in quick succession.

RB Leipzig in a match with "Marseilles" for the first time in its short history has kept his goal intact, and the only goal, Timo Werner brought the Germans to the semifinals.

Next up for Atletico is Sunday's derby against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu, where victory for Simeone's men would strengthen their grip on second place in LaLiga behind Barcelona.
