Villarreal 2-1 Arsenal: Unai Emery Beats Former Club in the 1st leg of Europa League Semis (Video)
Former Arsenal coach Unai Emery celebrates after Villarreal wins against the Gunners in the Semi finals of the Europa League Cup last evening.
Arsenal suffered a dismal first half at Estadio de la Ceramica as poor defending gave chance to Manuel Trigueros to smash home before an unmarked Raul Albiol scored the second for Villarreal’s to double their lead from close a range following a corner.
The Gunners were second best to Villarreal’s side and their hopes of reaching the final appeared in even greater doubt when Dani Ceballos was shown a red card for planting his studs on Villarreal's Dani Parejo.
However, Arsenal got an away goal after a penalty was issued against Villareal after Bukayo Saka was tripped by Trigueros inside the box.
