Arsenal draw CSKA in Europa League

Europa League quarter-final draw

GETTY The draw for the quarter-finals of the Europa League takes place on Friday

Arsenal will face CSKA Moscow in Europa League quarter final, with the home leg first.

CSKA now lie in third place in the Russian Premier League and got past Lyon in the last round via the away goals rule.

Although the 23-year-old has recorded just five top-flight starts this season, his comfortable display against an in-form AC Milan will leave Arsenal fans with some comfort.

The Europa League quarter-final draw took place at UEFA headquarters in Nyon this afternoon.

He also scored the opener in CSKA's 3-2 win away to Lyon on Thursday evening, a result which saw them progress to the quarter-finals at the expense of the Ligue 1 side.

Here's what Twitter had to say about Arsenal drawing CSKA Moscow on Friday.

Arsenal and CSKA Moscow's only other meetings came in the group stage of the 2006-07 Champions League.

Following on from Sunday's Premier League victory over Watford, Arsenal's third successive win in all competitions provides a measure of breathing space for Wenger after a miserable run sparked fresh calls for his dismissal.

The first leg of the tie is set for April 5 at the Emirates Stadium, with the second leg on April 12.
