Europa League: Arsenal eliminate AC Milan to qualify for quarter-final, Dortmund out


Arsenal are through to the quarter-final of the Europa League, after a 3-1 win over AC Milan on Thursday night in London.

The Gunners gave themselves a big chance of qualification, after winning the first leg 2-0 at the San Siro last week.

However, it was the Serie A side that took the lead at the Emirates, with Hakan Calhanoglu unleashing a fierce drive past David Ospina.

The home side equalized before the break, with Danny Welbeck slotting home a controversial penalty.

Arsene Wenger’s men scored two more goals through Welbeck and Granit Xhaka, to take the tie beyond Milan.

Borussia Dortmund have been eliminated from the competition, following a 0-0 draw away at Salzburg. They were beaten 2-1 in the first leg.
