Arsenal found the brilliance of their compatriot Manchester United, Thursday, in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

Tomasz holesz scored with a header in stoppage time to lead Czech Slavia Prague to a 1-1 draw with Arsenal in a thrilling final-minute match.

Substitute Nicolas Pepe appeared to give Arsenal the advantage in the 86th minute, ahead of next week’s home game in the Czech Republic.

But holish picked up a draw to keep his team in contention.

There were good chances for both sides, and Arsenal played the final touch, putting him in an awkward position amid attempts to save his season.

In contrast, Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes led Manchester United to a tough 2-0 away win over Spanish Granada to put the English side ahead in the semi-finals.

In a match where there were few clear chances, Rashford’s goal after half an hour caught the eye.

The England striker tamed a long pass from Victor Lindelof before calmly slotting in to put United ahead with his 20th goal of the season in all competitions.
