    Griezmann Scores Late Goal As Arsenal Draw 1–1 Against 10 Man Atletico Madrid At The Emirates


    Antoine Griezmann punished Arsenal’s lax defence late on as 10-man Atletico Madrid’s rearguard action salvaged a draw from the Europa League semi-final first leg at the Emirates.

    The visitors were on the back foot for almost the entire game after defender Sime Vrsaljko was dismissed for two yellow cards in the first 10 minutes.

    Their defence survived unscathed to half-time with Alexandre Lacazette clipping the post with a half-volley in the hosts’ best chance.

    Lacazette nodded in Jack Wilshere’s cross just after the hour to apparently edge the Gunners closer to a Europa League final send-off for outgoing manager Arsene Wenger.

    But with eight minutes remaining Griezmann latched onto a long ball forward, shrugged off Laurent Koscielny and stabbed into the net at the second attempt to swing the momentum Atletico’s way.
