Arsenal 1-1 Atletico: Griezmann outwits Lacazette & Wenger

Antoine Griezmann kept Atletico Madrid contending against Arsenal despite Sime Vrsaljko’s early red card and Alexandre Lacazette’s opener by securing a 1-1 draw in their Europa League semi-final first-leg. Vrsaljko saw red for two bookable challenges early on and Arsenal capitalised through Lacazette - now the joint-top scoring Frenchman to play in Europe’s top five leagues since last season, alongside Griezmann on 53 goals. But the latter had other plans and he outwitted both Laurent Koscielny and Skhodran Mustafi to fire home the equaliser, putting outgoing Gunners boss Arsene Wenger’s hopes of securing his last piece of silverware at the club in jeopardy.
