Nicolas Pepe’s penalty has given Arsenal hope in their Europa League semi-final tie with Villarreal.

The Gunners, taking on ex-boss Unai Emery, made a nightmare start to the first leg clash in Spain.

Manu Trigueros gave Villarreal a fifth minute lead and Raul Albiol then doubled it before the half an hour mark.

Things got worse for Arsenal when Dani Ceballos was sent off for a second bookable offence.

But they gave themselves hope in this tie when Bukayo Saka was fouled and Pepe slotted home the resulting spot kick.

There was still time for one more red card too, as Villarreal’s Etienne Capoue was sent off.

Arsenal will trail by one goal when the second leg takes place at the Emirates, but they will have an away goal in the bank.

The Gunners are 4/5 with bet365 to win the second leg, and 21/20 ‘to qualify’ for the final.

Villarreal are slight favourites ‘to qualify’ at 7/10, while it is 16/5 that they win the second leg too.
