    But can Arsenal meet them in the final? They really need a goal to save their season!

    66 SUBSTITUTION

    And here's the substitution we were telling you about.

    Martinelli replaces Odegaard, who cannot continue after picking up a knock

  • Kostas Lianos

    ARSENAL 0-0 VILLARREAL

    65 Villarreal are so confident and strong on the ball…

    Just now Pedraza delivered a through ball inside the box that Tierney just manages to clear.

    Arsenal are getting a little sloppy

  • Kostas Lianos

    ARSENAL 0-0 VILLARREAL

    63 Both players are fine to continue so far but Martinelli is set to come on.

    Meanwhile, Roma have turned things around at the Olimpico with Cristante, taking the aggregate to 7-4.

    Can they pull off the same as they did against Barcelona in the Champions League…?

  • Kostas Lianos

    ARSENAL 0-0 VILLARREAL

    62 Mari and Odegaard suffer a knock and Martinelli is getting ready to come on.

    Villarreal have upped the tempo

  • Kostas Lianos

    ARSENAL 0-0 VILLARREAL

    60 Villarreal are slowly stretching Arsenal's defence with Paco, Gerard and Pino.

    Tierney's fitness raises questions as well, don't be surprised if he is replaced soon

  • Kostas Lianos

    ARSENAL 0-0 VILLARREAL

    58 Pino tries something between a pass and a shot that sees Leno tapping the ball away.

    The visitors are knocking on Arsenal's doors.

    Meanwhile, Dzeko has equalised for Roma against Manchester United, which takes the aggregate to 7-3 in favour of the Red Devils

  • Kostas Lianos

    ARSENAL 0-0 VILLARREAL

    56 Villarreal are still comfortable with the ball despite Arsenal picking up the tempo.

    Emery's men are just in no rush to seal the tie

  • Kostas Lianos

    ARSENAL 0-0 VILLARREAL

    53 CHANCE!

    Villarreal respond to Arsenal's chance with Gerard!

    Partey loses the ball at the back and the Yellow Submarine run the counter-attack which sees their dangerman firing a shot from the edge of the box that forces a lunge from Leno to his right

  • Kostas Lianos

    ARSENAL 0-0 VILLARREAL

    52 Pepe and Gaspar fall on the ground and require treatment after a rough aerial clash.

  • Kostas Lianos

    ARSENAL 0-0 VILLARREAL

    49 WHAT A CHANCE!

    Bellerin delivers a cross down the right flank and Rulli again makes a weak clearance with his fists.

    The ball goes to Smith Rowe who just missed Villarrea's post.

    Arteta has the right idea, he notices Rulli's weakness in his clearances and is ordering his players to cross the ball from the wings.

    Why didn't Emery start Asenjo?

  • Kostas Lianos

    ARSENAL 0-0 VILLARREAL

    47 CHANCE!

    Arsenal come close there as Tierney finds Pepe down the left wing with a marvellous pass and the Ivorian fires a shot that just misses Rulli's post.

    The Gunners need to do more of that in the second half!

  • Kostas Lianos

    ARSENAL 0-0 VILLARREAL

    46 No changes from either side as we kick off the second half.

    Arsenal need to push themselves as they really need a goal!

    As it stands, Villarreal are the ones who are going to the final

  • Kostas Lianos

    PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

    AND OFF WE GO AGAIN AT THE EMIRATES!!!!!!!

    STATS

    Arsenal dominated 54.3 per cent of possession in the first half.

    The Gunners registered a total of four shots, but only one of them was on target.

    Villarreal recorded the exact same stat as only one of their four shots was on target.

    However, it is Unai Emery's men who seem more comfortable on the ball so far.

    As it stands, Villarreal go through to the final but if the north Londoners score then they will qualify on away goals

  • Kostas Lianos

    HT: ARSENAL 0-0 VILLARREAL

    All goalless at the Emirates but quite a lot to take from the first 45 minutes.

    Villarreal came close to an opener twice when Samuel Chukwueze's beautiful curling shot forced an acrobatic save from Bernd Leno and Dani Parejo's stunning free-kick just missed the crossbar.

    But Arsenal also caused danger when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang fired a clever shot inside the box with the outside of his right foot and rattled Geronimo Rulli's bar down his bottom right corner.

    The Yellow Submarine, though, were unlucky as they lost Chukwueze to an injury and Unai Emery replaced him with Yeremi Pino

    PEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

    AND THAT'S HALF-TIME AT THE EMIRATES!!!!

  • Kostas Lianos

    ARSENAL 0-0 VILLARREAL

  • Kostas Lianos

    ARSENAL 0-0 VILLARREAL

    42 Cavani opens the scoring for Manchester United against Roma in Rome.

  • Kostas Lianos

    ARSENAL 0-0 VILLARREAL

    40 CHANCE

    Vaillarreal star Albiol tries to score the same way he did last week from a corner-kick.

    The goal is head to the back post where he tries a shot that gets a deflection

  • Kostas Lianos

    ARSENAL 0-0 VILLARREAL

    39 CHANCE!

    Smith Rowe finds Aubameyang down the left side with a clever ball, the Arsenal striker loves that angle and tries a curling shot.

    The ball slips from Rulli's grasp and bounces towards the net but the Villarreal keeper saves it right on time!
