Video: CSKA Moscow (3) 2 – 2 (6) Arsenal (April-12-2018) UEFA Europa League Quarter-Finals 2nd Leg Highlights.
CSKA Moscow (3) 2 – 2 (6) Arsenal – Arsenal are into the Europa League semi-finals. Arsenal reached the Europa League semi-finals with a 6-3 aggregate win at CSKA Moscow despite a nervy 2-2 draw in Russia.
Arsene Wenger’s side were trailing 2-0 and under pressure when Danny Welbeck’s second-half goal gave them breathing space.
The hosts, who led through Fedor Chalov and Kirill Nabakin, went close to drawing level on aggregate and leading on away goals as Petr Cech saved Aleksandr Golovin’s free-kick and Sergei Ignashevich shot narrowly wide.
Arsenal, the leading scorers in the competition, did not have an effort on target in the first 70 minutes, and Laurent Koscienly wasted a glorious chance before Welbeck struck.
Aaron Ramsey’s goal in stoppage time made certain of their progress into the last four alongside Atletico Madrid, Marseille and Salzburg

- 39′ 1 – 0 Fedor Chalov give CSKA hope of comeback. Here we go again. Konstantin Kuchaev crosses from the left – Kirill Nababkin heads at goal, it’s a decent low save by Petr Cech but he doesn’t hold it – he just parries it straight to Fedor Chalov, who taps home from close range.

He cuts inside and passes to Mohamed Elneny, who plays a first-time pass back to Welbeck, who guides the ball home with the inside of his boot. CSKA need two now just to force extra time.
- 90+2′ 2 – 2 Aaron Ramsey nets in injury time. CSKA have sent everyone forward and the impressive Mohamed Elneny plays a ball through to Aaron Ramsey, who is in acres of space. He can take his time and clips the ball over Igor Akinfeev.
