94' THE REF BLOWS THE WHISTLE ONE LAST TIME!

There will be no silverware for the Frenchman in his final season in charge at the helm of Arsenal Football Club. Not the fairytale ending everyone associated with Arsenal Football Club wanted. Simeone's Atletico move ahead into the Final in Lyon. They will be favourites to lift the trophy from here on in. It was a pleasure describing the game for you. As always. Until next time.

What a beast.

...
53' WHAT A CHANCE FOR RAMSEY!

Atletcio getting Arsenal's defensive jitters for a moment as they don't clear their lines. Aaron Ramsey almost makes them pay with just the keeper to beat. Connects with his thigh though. Goal-kick. Golden opportunity out of nowhere.
...
52' Danny Welbeck with a divine touch to go past Diego Godin who has no choice but to foul him. Arsenal were away there had Danny boy managed to keep his feet. Free-kick.

...
48' Mustafi showing us he can tackle without conceding a foul. Concedes a corner instead. Costa on the end one the cross. Straight into the hands of Ospina. Should've done better the former Chelsea man.
...
48' Ospina's turn to punt the ball forward in hope. No luck.
...
47' Arsenal still jittery at the start fo the second. Gift a throw to their opposition. Arsenal will prove to be an amazing first date won't they?
Will put out for you and everything.
...
46' The home side get things underway in the second.. If you don't yet know which goal they're attacking in the second, you don't deserve to know.
...
48' Referee blows for half time! Right on the brink of half time and Arsenal concede another avoidable goal. Doesn't dramatically alter the course of the tie thought that, as Arsenal still need to score at least one goal.
...
DIEGOOOOO COOOOOOOSSSSSTTTTTTAAAAAAAA!

Arsenal's defensive frailties coming to fore again. Oblak with a clearance rather than a ball forward. They don't deal with it again. Mustafi heads it out to the opposition and they break in numbers with Costa finding himself with the goal at his mercy, Bellerin trying to bring him to the ground. Not happening. He just lifts it over the keeper with his left. Emphatic finish!
...
GOAAAAAALLLLLLLLLL!! Atletico 1-0 Arsenal!
