Arsenal have learned their fate in the next stage of the Europa League after the quarter-final draw was made in Switzerland.
It’s been a very pleasing last eight days for Arsenal.
A 2-0 first leg victory over AC Milan in the Europa League was followed up with a Premier League win on the weekend and last night, the Gunners secured their third win in a week.
The 3-1 win over AC Milan secured the Gunners’ path into the last eight of the Europa League and the draw was made in Switzerland this afternoon.
Atletico Madrid, CSKA Moscow, Lazio, Marseille, RB Leipzig, Red Bull Salzburg and Sporting Lisbon joined Arsenal in the draw with every side presumably eager to avoid Diego Simeone’s Atletico side.
Well, the draw has been made and Arsenal will take on the Russian side, CSKA Moscow.

CSKA currently lie in third place in the Russian Premier League and got past Lyon in the last round via the away goals rule.
It’s a decent draw for Arsenal. Arsene Wenger and the Gunners players will certainly fancy their chances in this contest – particularly at home – as Wenger looks to win his first European title. CSKA Moscow are a good side but surely the Gunners can reach the next stage.
The first matches will be played on 5 April with the return legs a week later. You can follow the matches via the Arsenal vs CSKA Moscow live streams.
