18 mins: Pressure building from Arsenal as Ramsey lobs one over the top for Bellerin. There's just too much fizz on the pass, which bounces away from the Spanish full-back.
7 minutes ago
15 mins: A brilliant pass from Ramsey to the overlapping Monreal, who cuts it back into an area where Lacazette and Welbeck are waiting. He finds neither of them.
9 minutes ago
13 mins: Costa causes more trouble for Monreal, winning a free-kick out in the right channel. Koke clips it to the near post but Saul can't time his leap right and Arsenal clear.
13 minutes ago

9 mins: Now Arsenal have a real problem. Koscielny goes down off the ball, no challenge on him at all but he's gripping what could be one of his troublesome Achilles. Calum Chambers is coming on as the Gunners' vice-captain departs on a stretcher.

6 mins: Lacazette drifts wide to the right after brilliant combination play from Ozil and Ramsey. The French striker drills a cross into the right area but Wilshere can't reach it and Arsenal settle for a corner which Atletico clear.

Soon after Costa bullies first Koscielny and then Monreal to claim a bouncing ball, barging the latter onto the deck. Ospina is out quickly to tighten the angle and the Atleti striker curls his shot wide.

4 mins: It's all Atletico in the possession stakes just now but Arsenal do well to force them back to Oblak, who boots it long and Arsenal get the ball. A largely encouraging start from the Gunners but they're certainly not dominating proceedings as they did last week.
20 minutes ago
2 mins: Atletico get a corner with just a minute played. Koke whips it in but it's cleared as far as Vitolo, who gives it back to the host's No.6. The cross seems easy for Ospina to claim but he opts to punch instead.

Kick off: Lacazette gets the ball rolling as Mustafi immediately pumps one long to Welbeck. He doesn't win the header but Arsenal keep the ball.

There'll be no Diego Simeone in the Wanda Metropolitana dugout after his first-leg sending off, which could also rule him out of the final in Lyon later this month:
I'm sad about the situation and the suspension.

"I will have to improve and I'd best not say anything else. It is not going to change the way I coach the team."

Here's more from an evasive Arsene Wenger on his decision to leave Mkhitaryan on the bench and start with Welbeck:

It's not the best moment to explain the why of the decisions. We win a game like that with 18. Everybody has the same focus.

"We need strikers tonight. Everybody will have a part to play, all the big players."

Away from tonight's big game there's plenty of cause for optimism in Arsenal's Hale End setup.

England have confirmed their squad for the Under-17 European Championships that will kick off in the Midlands and South Yorkshire later this week, with Arsenal providing six of the 20-man group.
Vontae Daley-Campbell, Bukayo Saka, Trae Coyle, Xavier Amaechi, Flo Balogun and Tyreece-John Jules will represent the Gunners in Steve Cooper’s squad, for a tournament that kicks off on Friday night.

Fulham goalkeeper Luca Ashby-Hammond, West Ham defender Ajibola Alese and Chelsea midfielder Tino Anjorin will also be part of the England side, who are expected to be among the leading contenders to win the tournament.

All six Arsenal representatives played a crucial role in the Gunners passage to the FA Youth Cup Final for the first time in nine years, though their campaign ended in disappointment as they were beaten 7-1 by Chelsea on aggregate.

The Young Lions, who under Cooper won the U17 World Cup in October, campaign begins against Israel in Chesterfield on Friday before they host Italy and Switzerland in the remaining group stage games. The top two in each of the four groups qualify for the quarter-finals, with the final due to take place in Rotherham on May 20.

England U17 Euros Squad
Goalkeepers: Luca Ashby-Hammond (Fulham), Marcus Dewhurst (Sheffield United), Adam Desbois (Training GK - Reading)
Defenders: Ajibola Alese (West Ham United), Dylan Crowe (Ipswich Town), Vontae Daley-Campbell (Arsenal), Ethan Laird (Manchester United), Nat Ogbeta (Manchester City)
Midfielders: Tino Anjorin (Chelsea), Trae Coyle (Arsenal), Matty Daly (Huddersfield Town), Elijah Dixon-Bonner (Liverpool), Tommy Doyle (Manchester City), Jimmy Garner (Manchester United)
Forwards: Xavier Amaechi (Arsenal), Arvin Appiah (Nottingham Forest), Folarin Balogun (Arsenal), Bobby Duncan (Unattached), Tyreece John-Jules (Arsenal), Rayhaan Tulloch (West Bromwich Albion), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal)
