Arsenal eased to a 4-0 win away at Slavia Prague in Thursday’s Europa League quarter-final second leg.

Arsenal went all out in the first half, scoring three goals in six minutes. They triumphed over Slavia Prague. 4-0 victory and a 5-1 aggregate victory.

Several missed chances came back to haunt Arsenal in the rematch last week. In a 1-1 tie, Tomas Holes scored late to cancel out Nicolas Pepe’s opener.

In front of a sparse crowd at Sinobo Stadium, the Gunners were at their most effective. Within 24 minutes, Pepe, Alexandre Lacazette, and Bukayo Saka scored to wipe out Slavia’s away-goal advantage.

Slavia had gone 23 games without losing in all competitions, and their last loss came at home in November 2019. There was no sign of a revival as Lacazette scored a late fourth goal to secure Arsenal’s win.

Post match reaction Notable Performance (Arsenal vs Slavia Prague):

Arsenal is counting on the Europa League to save their season, and with this success, there’s no excuse: they can’t win it next month.

For the first time since December 1932, the Gunners have scored three or more goals in four consecutive away games in all competitions.

A reunion with ex-boss Emery awaits following Villarreal’s 3-1 aggregate win over Dinamo Zagreb. Roma will face Manchester United in the other semi-final.

Notable Performance (Arsenal vs Slavia Prague)

Bukayo Saka: In complete contrast to last week in London, the first half of this second leg was an attacking masterclass from the Gunners. Three of their four forward players on the scoresheet. Smith Rowe had a goal ruled out. Saka caught the eye and with his goal. He has now netted four times for Arsenal in European competition.

Calum Chambers: Hector Bellerin has been booted out from the XI. One cannot blame Arteta for it because Calum Chambers has been grasping every chance his manager throws at him. The Englishman dropped another exceptional performance on the night, while also contributing with an assist.

Alexandre Lacazette: With a brace on the night, Alex Lacazette has taken his goal-scoring tally to 17 goals in all competitions this season. his best season at Arsenal. One would argue that the 29-year-old is playing for a new contract as his contract ends in the summer of 2022. However, he is finally showing why he was bought by Arsenal in 2016.
