Arsene Wenger's side will host Atletico at the Emirates on April 26 in the first-ever competitive meeting between the two clubs before returning to face the Spanish side at Wanda Metropolitano on May 3.

Arsenal were made to sweat in Moscow despite heading into the second leg with a comfortable 4-1 advantage.

Diego Costa, who returned to the club from Chelsea earlier this season, could be a doubt for the first leg after Atletico confirmed he had suffered a hamstring injury in the game in Portugal.

Playing each Thursday in Europe and then Sunday in the Premier League has taken its toll on many English clubs over the years.

CSKA Moscow scored two goals before Elneny distributed a magical pass to Danny Welbeck, turning the result to 2-1.

The Reds beat Pep Guardiola's champions-in-waiting with victories in both legs, culminating in a stunning 5-1 aggregate scoreline - and now they'll face Roma, who they last played in the 2001/02 group stage.

On avoiding a team like Atletico Madrid, he added, "Ideally [we would wish to avoid them]".

The Europa League final will be in Lyon, France on Wednesday, 16 May, with the victor guaranteed a place in next season's Champions League.

Atletico are considered the clear favourites to win the competition for what would be the third time in their history, while pressure is increasing on Arsenal to lift the trophy following a turbulent domestic campaign.

The visitors were looking a lot less comfortable when Fedor Chalov netted his first Europa League goal of the season, though, giving the Red-Blues something to build on. The teams also drew 0-0 at the Velodrome.

Bundesliga champions Bayern, who named their former player Niko Kovac as their next coach minutes before the draw, eased past Sevilla in their quarter-final.
