Arsenal vs Atletico Madrid Tips, Predictions & Match Preview

"They have to have a manager who can punch above their weight, and the outstanding candidate for me is Diego Simeone at Atletico Madrid".

Costa has missed his side's last three games against Levante, Real Sociedad and Real Betis, while his availability for the Gunners' game is unsure.

The 25-year-old - who moved to Madrid from Benfica in 2014 - has helped Atletico up to second in La Liga, while the Spanish outfit are preparing for their Europa League semi-final showdown with Arsenal.

The Argentine has taken Atletico from mediocrity to the La Liga title and two Champions League finals since taking charge of the club in 2011.

Fernando Torres started up front in Costa's absence on Sunday evening but failed to hit the target in the goalless draw with Real Betis.

"Arsenal will have to be aware of not giving the ball away cheaply due to the threat of Atletico Madrid; when they win the ball back quickly with the pace they've got in attack. I do not think of anything other than Atletico".


Former Chelsea striker Diego Costa was a shock inclusion in the team's 20-man squad that set off for London today.

However, a 19-year run in Europe's premier club competition came to an end this season and Arsenal's only chance of qualifying for next season's Champions League is by winning the Europa League.

"I'm slightly concerned about Atletico".

Jon Driscoll's light look at the weekend's football in Spain, including Andres Iniesta's emotional goodbye in the Copa del Rey, what Kevin Keatings and Terry Gibson really look like and footballers apologising for scoring goals.

"I think he has little chance of playing on Thursday in the first leg, but he will be back for the second", said the Argentine manager, as quoted by Daily Mail.
