Emery, who has not lost a knockout tie in this competition since he was in charge of Valencia in 2012, knows he needs to win the same title in Baku on May 29 to seal a Champions League return for Arsenal in his first season at the helm.

The dramatic victories come after both Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspurs booked their places in this year's Champions League final in two come-from-behind wins this week.

With Unai Emery's side warming up on the Mestalla pitch ahead of their crucial Europa League semi-final with Valencia on Thursday, Gol TV's Mónica Benavent was struck on the back of the head with a ball while live on air.

The penalty shoot-out showed we couldn't make it but I am very proud of my team and they gave everything and we nearly beat Chelsea.

As for Arsenal, it was a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hat trick that paced the Gunners to a 4-2 win, advancing 7-3 on aggregate.

Chelsea fans were forced to endure a nerve-wracking semi-final in Stamford Bridge as Eintracht Frankfurt forced a penalty shootout which ended 4-3 to the south London team.

Arsenal have been woeful in the Premier League and require a miracle this weekend to finish in the top four above Spurs.

Lacazette said Arsenal had to push on now and win the trophy to qualify for the Champions League next season with a top four spot and automatic qualification almost out of reach after they picked up only four points from their last six games. The Olympic Stadium in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, will host the final.

It also could be Eden Hazard's last home game for Chelsea as all signs point to a move to Real Madrid this summer. "It is a final so it doesn't matter which team we play, we have to give everything and win". The performance we had, six wins and knocked out some Champions League teams and we nearly embarrassed the top team at home, but we have nothing to show for it.

"We have been informed by Uefa that both clubs will receive an allocation of just 6,000 tickets each for the match", Arsenal said.

"We can try to recover him only in the case of the final". "It was a dream to get to the final that did not happen". I just try to my best and make them happy.

This is now officially Arsenal's biggest game of the season so far as the trip to Valencia wil decide if we are still in with a chance of a trophy this season. Today was really good and we played against a very hard team and we are very happy. "I think in this moment we need to rest then we have 10 days to prepare for the final".
