Alexandre Lacazette fired Arsenal to an accomplished 1-0 win at Napoli as Unai Emery’s men cruised into the Europa League semi-finals 3-0 on aggregate.
The Premier League side began confidently in defence of their first-leg advantage and did not allow a couple of close defensive shaves and a hamstring injury to Aaron Ramsey to throw them off course.
Lacazette’s wonderful 36th-minute free-kick proved the difference on the night, leaving Carlo Ancelotti’s hosts with a mountain to climb.
Arkadiusz Milik’s wayward finishing did little to help their cause and Emery can look forward to a *semi-final showdown with his former club Valencia.*
