The Gunners 4-2 win over Valencia at the Mestalla on Thursday maade them qualify for the final of the Europa League.

Kevin Gameiro struck first to give the LaLiga side the lead, before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang levelled six minutes later.

Gameiro cancelled out Alexandre Lacazette’s instinctive strike in the second half, before Aubameyang’s brace settled the tie.

The final will be played in Baku on May 29.

This is the first time two English clubs would qualify for Champions league final and two others for Europa league final.
