Atletico's Diego Costa kills Wenger's trophy dream for Arsenal

Koscielny's World Cup hopes at risk after being carried off injured

The evening in Madrid did not begin as one of gloom and doom for the Arsenal supporters - the Gunners started the match in a confident fashion, holding their own against a physically aggressive Atletico Madrid, while Diego Simeone looked on from the stands. It's very sad, very, very, very sad.

The game opened up after the break but Arsenal were unable to carve out a meaningful chance against the well organised Atletico defence. They (Atletico) are a team that defends well.

"I'm like the team, very sad and very disappointed", Wenger said.

Spanish striker Diego Costa fired a game winning shot on his striking partner Antoine Griezmann's pass just before the first half ended. "Marseille are a hard team, they came through a hard game tonight, for sure it will be a great final".

If he does that, Atletico will be on their way to the final. As for Marseille, a French team has never won the Europa League and hasn't won a Champions League since 1993. He isn't giving everything and there is a lot more under the bonnet."We expect better from him".

Wenger's 250th European fixture with Arsenal also to proved to be his last, decided by a typically ruthless finish from Costa, who delivered the sort of barnstorming display defenders must have nightmares about.

Arsenal lost captain Laurent Koscielny with an apparent ankle injury less than 10 minutes into the match, putting in doubt his World Cup participation with France next month. "But we have to be cautious".

It was Atletico's 32nd game with a clean sheet in all competitions this season, the most of any team in the top five European leagues.

Atletico coach Diego Simeone was banned following his foul-mouthed rant at the Emirates Stadium but his fellow Argentine assistant German "Mono" Burgos made up for his absence by whipping up the home side's famously passionate fans from the touchline.

But however the next month plays out, the big target now for Simeone's players to is to win the Champions League in their own stadium in 12 months' time because they simply can not allow Real to lift the European Cup in their new home.

"I felt how the atmosphere was. They were with us every step of the way, they knew the side needed them".
