Europa League round-up: Atletico Madrid join Arsenal in semi-finals as Red Bull Salzburg stun Lazio

Atletico Madrid and Marseille secured their spots in the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League, while Lazio were sent crashing out by Red Bull Salzburg.

The Aquile have the opportunity to enter the Europa League semi-finals and edge closer to not only silverware, but also automatic qualification for next season's Champions League.

With momentum squarely on their side, the hosts then pulled level on aggregate, with Hwang Hee-chan the latest Salzburg man to benefit from a deflection.

In Moscow, CSKA gave Arsenal a scare despite their 4-1 advantage from the opening game in London.

But Arsenal ended any doubt with quarter of an hour left as Welbeck played a brilliant one-two with Elneny before finishing sweetly into the corner to reduce the deficit on the night and extend their lead in the tie. Aaron Ramsey scored in stoppage time to complete the comeback for the Gunners.

"Maybe we were a bit surprised by the intensity of the game and we were not in the races in the first half".

In the end it was not required as Atletico avoided the drama endured by La Liga rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid in the Champions League to remain on course for their third Europa League crown.

Koke put Atletico in front after only 23 seconds of the first leg but they were on the back foot in the early stages in Lisbon.

CSKA head coach Viktor Gancharenko added: "We looked very good for 75 minutes and deservedly led".

But they did that before the interval in front of a huge Velodrome crowd, via a Stefan Ilsanker own goal, Bouna Sarr and Florian Thauvin.

The visitors scored a second when Jean-Kevin Augustin's superb free kick turned the tie in Leipzig's favour again in the 55th minute. This was after Ciro Immobile got in behind the Salzburg defense to make it 5-2 on aggregate in the 55th, seemingly dashing all hopes for the home side.

Salzburg then scored three times in five insane minutes through Amadou Haidara, Hee Chan-hwang and Stefan Lainer to claim a remarkable 6-5 aggregate victory and become the first Austrian side into a European semi-final since 1996.
