BREAKING: Villarreal Knocks Arsenal Out Of Europa League Final – #ARSVIL—-Spanish professional football , Villareal beat Arsenal 2-1 on aggregate to qualify for the final of this year’s Europa League after playing out a goalless draw at the Emirates Stdaium on Thursday.
The Genius Media Nigeria reports that Mikel Arteta’s side lacked impetus and inspiration but came agonisingly close to scoring a decisive goal, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang twice hitting the post.
Nicolas Pepe and Emile Smith Rowe both fired efforts wide early in the second half and Aubameyang hit the post again with a downward header later in the game but such moments were few and far between.
That the defeat came at the hands of former boss Unai Emery will be especially galling for the Gunners. Emery was sacked in November 2019 after 18 months in charge, ultimately leading to the appointment of Arteta.
