Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa returns to England in danger ahead of Arsenal clash in the semi-final of the Europa League encounter after he suffered a hamstring injury.

The first leg is at the Emirates and Wenger has to find a way of replicating how Arsenal played when they beat CSKA Moscow 4-1 at home in the quarter-finals.

Real Madrid will take on Bayern Munich for the other place in the final of the Champions League.

Atlético lost 1-0 to Sporting in Lisbon on Thursday but advanced 2-1 on aggregate.

Spanish football expert Balague believes that Bayern Munich are the current favourites to win the Champions League this season and warned Liverpool FC not to underestimate the threat posed by AS Roma in the last four.

"You keep that not only on the pitch, but by winning things", Cech, who lifted the Europa League with Chelsea in 2013, replied when asked what winning a European trophy does for a team.

Sitting in second spot in La Liga behind Barcelona, Simeone's men are a playing below their level in the second tier European tournament.

Speaking after Thursday's match in Moscow, when at one point Arsenal had been a goal away from elimination, manager Arsene Wenger admitted he would prefer to avoid Atletico in the last-four.

They overturned a 1-0 first-leg deficit against RB Leipzig in the quarter-finals to prevail 5-2 in the return date and keep their dreams alive.

Extra incentive for Marseille - the final is in Lyon, France.
