The first leg of the Europa League 1/16 final against Benfica was summed up by Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta (1-1).

“We dominated and generated the right opportunities for goals. We have a more brutal need to be. Disappointed with how we conceded. After a corner, we were a little confused and got a penalty.

But we had a great response and we scored a big goal,” Arteta told the BBC.

“We were trying to retain our playing level. Both teams slowed down in the last 20 minutes, but ultimately, we deserved more.”
