Arsenal Οvercomes Europa Scare, Salzburg Stages Fightback

first_imgMOSCOW (AP) — Arsenal overcame a scare against CSKA Moscow Thursday to reach the Europa League semifinals, while Salzburg staged a stunning comeback to knock Lazio out with four goals in a 20-minute burst.Played at a time of growing political tension between the Russian and British governments, there was no sign of trouble on the streets outside the VEB Arena in Moscow.CSKA went 2-0 up to put Arsenal under pressure but the London club hit back to draw 2-2 on the night and progress 6-3 on aggregate.Lazio seemed poised to clinch a place in the last four when Ciro Immobile struck in the 55th minute to give the Italian team a 5-2 advantage on aggregate.Salzburg, though, produced a spectacular recovery to become the first Austrian team to reach the semifinals of the competition in its current form.Marseille also qualified after losing the first leg, beating Leipzig 5-2 to win 5-3 overall, while Atletico Madrid lost 1-0 at Sporting Lisbon but scraped through 2-1 on aggregate.Thursday’s Europa League fixtures continued a week of dramatic Champions League comebacks, after Roma beat Barcelona and Juventus came close to knocking out Real Madrid.Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said it was a sign European competition is becoming more evenly matched. “The games are very open and everything is possible in every game,” he said.The Europa League semifinal draw will be on Friday.Here’s a look at the action:___ARSENAL THROUGHArsenal had to show some second-half grit to help Wenger move within three games of winning his first European trophy.Wenger’s team initially struggled on a cool spring night in Moscow, going 2-0 down after 50 minutes following goals from Fedor Chalov and Kirill Nababkin.Danny Welbeck came to the rescue with a 75th minute goal before Aaron Ramsey went charging through the middle of the defense to grab Arsenal’s second goal in stoppage time and extend his team’s unbeaten run to seven games in all competitions.Wenger said Arsenal’s three-goal lead from the first leg had led to complacency. “When you have a big difference from the first game, it’s hard to turn up with the same urgency,” he said.Despite the political tension between Russia and Britain over the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal last month and this week’s developments in Syria, there was no sign of anger outside the sold-out VEB Arena.The game was the last major European fixture to be played in Russia ahead of the World Cup and highlighted the country’s strategy of flooding city districts with security forces.There was a heavy police presence outside the ground and in much of the surrounding areas, with officers lining the streets and keeping fans in the open by barring access to alleyways.With Arsenal sixth in the Premier League, 13 points off fourth place, winning the Europa League is its best chance of a Champions League spot next season.___SALZBURG ENERGETICThe UEFA organizers had been faced with the awkward prospect of two Red Bull-branded teams, Salzburg and Leipzig, meeting in the semis and a resulting conflict of interest.Salzburg’s Munas Dabbur, left, celebrates after scoring his side’s opening goal during the quarter final second leg Europa League soccer match between FC Salzburg and Lazio in Salzburg, Austria, Thursday, April 12, 2018.
