Arsenal scored four past Slavia Prague to seal semi-final clash against former Villareal.
North-London side scored three quick goals in first half before sealing the win in the second-half away at Slavia Prague.
Mikel Arteta began brightly with Emile Smith Rowe opening the scoring only for a VAR review to adjudge that the midfielder had scored from off-side.
Smith Rowe would then set up Nicolas Pepe to open the scoring minutes before Alexandre Lacazette doubled the win from the spot after Bukayo Saka was brought down in the area.
Saka would then get into the scoresheet with a fantastic finish inside the area.
Arsenal controlled the rest of the match, controlling the ball for the better part of the match with much ease.
Lacazette would seal the win late in the match, receiving the ball from Pepe, adjusting his position and blasting the ball into the net.
Arsenal are through to the semi-finals of the competition where they will take on former Arsenal boss Unai Emery’s Villareal side that saw off Dinamo Zagreb in Spain.
