"We conceded the first goal".
Mouctar Diakhaby headed in for the Spanish side from just a couple of yards out even though he was surrounded by three Arsenal defenders.
Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has confirmed he wants to remain at the Emirates Stadium beyond this summer, according to Sky Sports.
"I said to him one month ago that I wanted to do something important in his last matches with us at the moment, maybe he can come back in the future".
Valencia also says it is working to identify the fans filmed and will "take corresponding disciplinary action" if they are season-ticket holders.
"They play with very strong players in midfield and defensively". We knew they were good on set-pieces and we have to be careful of that in the second leg.
Nadal battles past Struff in Barcelona
Thiem, who lost to Nadal in the 2017 final, beat the Spaniard 6-4 6-4, also avenging his defeat in last year's French Open final. I wish him all the best."Last week, Nadal lost in the semi-finals of the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters against Fabio Fognini".
Arsenal still have work to do with their awful away record this season likely to give Valencia plenty of encouragement.
Luckily for Arsenal, going forward they are still a formidable proposition for any team.
Mesut Ozil is now the highest paid footballer in the Arsenal squad and selling him off will undoubtedly free up a lot of money for Unai Emery.
Arsenal fought back and levelled on 18 minutes after Alexandre Lacazette tapped home Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's well-laid pass.
Arsenal travel to Valencia on Thursday, May 9, knowing their opponents must score twice without reply to have a hope of reaching the final.
Once again, it was up to the dynamic duo up front to restore order, with Lacazette doing what he apparently always does in Europa League semi finals - only Radamel Falcao, with seven, has more goals in such games than Laca (five) since 2010 - in finding the net, before his comic book-loving pal sealed the deal with minutes to go.
