LONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 5 – Arsenal took a commanding grip on their Europa League quarter-final tie against CSKA Moscow with a 4-1 win at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners took the lead inside nine minutes through Aaron Ramsey, but were pegged back not long after by a superb free-kick from Aleksandr Golovin.
However, parity would be short lived as a foul on Mesut Ozil gave Arsenal a spot kick, and Alexandre Lacazette calmly converted.
Ramsey then added his second with an incredible mid-air backheel finish, and Lacazette bagged again before the break as Arsene Wenger’s side went in 4-1 up at half-time.
