ATLETICO CHANGE: Savic on for Partey.
Three minutes added.
Arsenal throwing players forward now. Time is almost up.
Arsenal give the ball away cheaply. Torres has a chance to seal it but sees his strike beaten away.
Atletico already trying to keep the ball in the left corner with Torres and Koke. They earn a corner and it results in huge cheers from the home crowd. The Atletico supporters think they are there.
Wenger is crouching on the touchline. Is his hope of ending his tenure with Europa glory over?
Arsenal pressing now. Monreal skips into space on the left but rifles a woeful cross way beyond anyone in the middle.
ATLETICO CHANGE: Torres comes on for his 400th appearance for the hosts. He replaces Costa.
As it stands, this goal is taking Atletico into a fifth European final in nine season.
Costa wreaking havoc outside the Arsenal area. He surges into the right channel, but his cutback is well read by Mustafi who guides it up-field.
- Yellow cardDiego CostaAtlético Madrid
- Yellow cardShkodran MustafiArsenal
Costa and Mustafi with a bit of hand bags over nothing. Arsenal wanted to take a free kick on the edge of their own box quickly. Costa didn't want them to...
Griezmann looks to have surged free into the box, but Xhaka gets back to make a vital challenge just as the Frenchman looked to pull the trigger.
Altetico starting to see that finish line. Arsenal have looked dangerous all night without penetrating that rearguard. They need to gamble and throw bodies into that home area.
- OffVitoloAtlético Madrid
- OnÁngel CorreaAtlético Madrid
ATLETICO CHANGE: Vitolo off, Correa on.
Monreal left in acres of space on the left of the box. He nods it back across goal, but Welbeck doesn't react and Atletico get it clear - again.
Mkhitaryan with a lovely touch to tee up a volley 20 yards out, but it flashes just over the top of the crossbar.
Corner to Arsenal on the left. Less than 20 minutes left. Can they nick that all-important leveller?
- Yellow cardSaúlAtlético Madrid
Saul booked for halting Ramsey's probing run on the break.
- OffJack WilshereArsenal
- OnHenrikh MkhitaryanArsenal
ARSENAL CHANGE: Wilshere off, Henrikh Mkhitaryan on.
Let off for Arsenal. Costa turns brilliantly on the left of the box and cuts it back for Griezmann, who sees his goal-bound shot deflect into the air and into the clutches of Ospina. It was a great block by Chambers.
LATEST: Salzburg 2-0 Marseille (2-2 on aggregate).
Costa powers towards goal and lets rip from 30 yards, but it's well blocked.
Oblak gets down well to get a big hand on Xhaka's low 25-yard drive. Mustafi heads the resulting corner over the top.
Ozil saunters into the left of the area and cuts it back from the byline, but Godin is there to slide it to safety.
Griezmann curves the 25-yard free kick a few yards wide of the far post.
- Yellow cardNacho MonrealArsenal
Atletico counter and Griezmann is caught as he looked to pull the trigger 20 yards out. Monreal is booked for the foul.
It's been a good spell for Arsenal. Can they get that all-important away goal?
Ramsey looks to turn into space on the left of the box, but Partey gets across to make the interception. Ozil takes the resulting corner that is easily cleared by the home defence.
Back up the other end and Costa almost barges his way into a shooting chance on the right of the area, but he's eventually crowded out at the vital moment.
CLOSE! Wilshere's miscued shot from 20 yards falls kindly for Ramsey, but it won't sit for the Welshman and he skews a gilt-edged chance wide.
- Yellow cardGabiAtlético Madrid
Welbeck attempts to lead a charge on the counter but Gabi brings him crashing to a halt. Yellow card for the Atletico man.
How long until Wenger turns to Mkhitaryan?
Sad confirmation of Koscielny's injury.
- 2nd Half
KICK OFF! Atletico restart the contest. If they keep a clean sheet for 45 minutes they will be in the final. Can Arsenal respond?
- End of 1st Half
HT: Atletico 1-0 Arsenal. Costa's strike on the stroke of half time gives the hosts the advantage on the night and a 2-1 lead on aggregate.
- GoalDiego CostaAtlético Madrid
GOAL! Costa races onto Griezmann's through pass, holds off Bellerin and fires a rising shot over Ospina.
Three minutes added for that lengthy delay for the treatment of Koscielny.
The corner is nodded clear as far as Gabi who sees his thunderous volley blocked a sea of Arsenal shirts.
A late corner for Atletico on the left after Ozil worked back to halt Vitolo's run.
- Yellow cardJack WilshereArsenal
Wilshere booked for a foul on Gabi.
Monreal barges Griezmann to the floor in the centre circle after Atletico had threatened a dangerous counter with some slick one-touch stuff.
Griezmann sneaks into space on the right of the box from a clever, clipped free kick, but can only flash an effort just wide on the spin.
Arsenal struggle to clear a floated free kick into the box. It bounces around until Koke lashes a volley just wide from the right edge of the area.
Arsenal trying to play out from the back, but Ospina miscues with a ball to the right and gives away a needless throw.
A sad sight. Arsenal have coped well since losing their skipper.
The corner is floated to the edge of the box where Partey lets rip with a thunderous volley that fizzes straight at Ospina. It wouldn't have counted anyway as Godin was penalised for body checking Mustafi when the corner was taken.
A sloppy mix up between Xhaka and Ospina gifts the home side a corner on the left.
A nearly moment for Arsenal. Lacazette springs free in the area on the left side. He is forced wide by Oblak and can't get a shot away. The ball is eventually drilled into the six-yard box, but Atletico stand firm.
It's been a very tight, cagey affair so far. Plenty of positives for Arsenal though.
Atletico break at speed. It's fed into Costa 12 yards out, but he can't create the space to get a shot away and eventually stumbles. Arsenal seize possession and move it to safety.
Griezmann calling for the crowd to raise the noise level. He's also sporting a cut close to his neck.
DID YOU KNOW? The last two times Arsenal have drawn the first leg of a European semi-final, they've gone on to reach the final (1979-80 and 1993-94 Cup Winners Cup).
Arsenal beginning to cause that Atletico defence to creak. Bellerin marauds into space on the right but completely miscues his cross with bodies waiting to attack it in the middle.
A slick Arsenal move down the left ends in disappointment as Ramsey's clipped pass to the far post for Bellerin has too much on it.
Koke floats it into the box, but Welbeck is there to power a header clear.
Play resumes and Atletico win a free kick on the right flank.
- OffLaurent KoscielnyArsenal
- OnCalum ChambersArsenal
ARSENAL CHANGE: Calum Chambers replaced the injured Koscielny.
Sympathetic applause as Koscielny is carried off on a stretcher. He's clearly in a lot of pain.
The stretcher is on the pitch and Chambers is stripped on the touchline. It looks bleak for Koscielny. Could he be ruled out of the World Cup?
Koscielny went down with no-one near him. He seemed to be clutching his Achilles.
Play stopped with Koscielny down. He looks in agony. This doesn't look good for the away side.
Costa bullies Koscielny and Monreal before surging in to the right of the area. He moves in for the kill but skews his short horribly wide. Let off for the visitors.
Lacazette is left in acres of space on the right. He doesn't hang around and whips a devilish ball across the six-yard box, but there's no Arsenal forward in sight. Partey mops up at the back post.
STAT: Atletico have lost just one of their past 17 home games in European competition (W13 D3).
Koke's delivery doesn't beat the first man. He gets a second chance that should be meat and drink for Ospina, but the Arsenal stopper elects to punch clear. The visitors eventually get it to safety despite some early miscommunication.
Early corner for the home side on the left.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! Arsenal get this second leg up and running.
Elsewhere, Marseille are in the driving seat in the other semi final.
Good omen... ?
Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has called on his side's supporters to create an explosive atmosphere to push his team into the Europa League final.
Atletico have made three changes to the team that earned a flattering 1-1 draw in London. Vitolo, Gabi and old foe, Diego Costa start.
Key lines from the teams news: Arsenal stick with the XI that faced Atletico in London. That means there are eight changes from the team that lost 2-1 at Manchester United. However, their goalscorer that afternoon, Henrik Mkhitaryan is on the bench. The Armenian playmaker was absent for the first leg.
Arsenal’s search for a new manager has seen them linked with some of football’s biggest names. But there could be a shock appointment in store with Jurgen Klopp’s assistant manager Zeljko Buvac hastily leaving Liverpool amid talk of a move to Emirates Stadium. But who is the man who spent 17 years working at Klopp’s side, and could he really take on the huge task of replacing Arsene Wenger? Tom Adams takes a closer look...
WENGER: "I don't know what I will do next season. At the minute I think I would like to finish well my job. I believe a man has to give his best as long as he is somewhere, with all my commitment and energy I would like to walk out of Arsenal one day and think until the last day I focused only on Arsenal. When my job is finished at Arsenal I will see where I go from there but I want to finish this love story well."
Wenger hoping it's a case of lucky number seven tonight in what is his 250th European match.
