Arsenal reached their first European final since 2006 by beating Valencia 4-2 in the second leg of the Europa League semi-final tie at the Mestalla.

The Gunners went through with an aggregate scoreline of 7-3.

Kevin Gameiro scored in the 11th minute following a sweeping Valencia move to give his team the hope.

However, six minutes later, Alexandre Lacazette won an important header to set up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the edge of the box. The latter then did well to take his strike early and score the equaliser on the night.

Arsenal took the lead when Lacazette was found by Lucas Torreira on the break. The Frenchman turned past a Valencia centre-back and planted his shot past Neto.

The home side pulled one back through Gameiro in the 58th minute to give his team some hope. However, that was vanished in the 69th minute, when Ainsley-Maitland Niles produced a good low cross for Aubameyang to manufacture a fine finish at the near post.

The Arsenal striker completed his hat-trick in the 88th minute to end this tie on a high for the away side. They will now get ready to pack for Baku two weeks from now.
