Antoine Griezmann might be playing for a place in the Europa League final against Arsenal tonight but the Atletico Madrid forward still showed concern for his opponent as Laurent Koscielny was stretchered off injured.
Arsene Wenger’s only chance of leaving Arsenal after 22 years with silverware and on a high comes in the Europa League. Victory in the competition would give him a first European trophy and passage into next season’s Champions League for the Gunners.
That was always going to be a difficult task for the north London side as they had to beat Atletico Madrid away from home, or draw with a scoreline of 2-2 or greater, just to make the final.
Though they didn’t score themselves in the opening they also didn’t concede however they were dealt with a blow half way through the first period when Laurent Koscielny had to be stretchered off.
Antoine Griezmann looked visibly upset as he tries to comfort France teammate Laurent Koscielny. The Arsenal captain is now a major doubt for the World Cup.
