On Friday, Arsenal will hopefully be in the Europa League semi-final draw along with three other clubs from around the continent, so here’s the lowdown on what to expect from each one.
At this stage, we still don’t know for sure which three of the six teams remaining will still be in the competition tomorrow. Let’s look at all the possibilities:
Leipzig started out in the Champions League, but dropped down to the Europa League after finishing third in their group.
They finished second in the Bundesliga last season, but are on a bit of a rough patch right now, which has seen them drop down to sixth. They’re still only six points off second though.
Despite their inconsistent league and Champions League form, Leipzig have looked impressive in the Europa League so far. They had to see off Napoli in the round of 32, and beat Zenit St. Petersburg 3-2 in the last 16. They won the first leg of their quarter-final 1-0 against Marseille.
German striker Timo Werner has four goals in five games in the competition, so he’s one to watch out for.
Naby Keita is their other star man, and the 23-year-old is set to join Liverpool in the summer. You can bet he’d be keen to make an impression up against a rival English side.
