Europa League Semis: First Leg Results


No side takes a lead into the Second Legs of the UEFA Europa League Semi-Final ties next week after both First Leg matches finished level tonight. The all-London affair at Stamford Bridge finished 1-1, with Chelsea going in front through Juan Mata before Olivier Giroud scored a late equaliser for Arsenal.

In Germany, last year’s Champions League winners Bayern Munich were held to a 0-0 draw by Paris Saint-Germain in a dour match spoiled by stop-start play due to the number of fouls both sides committed. PSG will fancy their chances in the return leg, to give us a French-English final for the second year running.
