Arsenal quelled a CSKA Moscow comeback to draw 2-2 in Russian Federation and go through 6-3 on aggregate. But Moanes Dabour quickly canceled out that goal a minute later.

Twenty-year old attacker, Fedor Chalov converted on the rebound after Cech's save came out to him, while a similar sequence of event also led to Kirill Nababkin slamming home the second goal to bring the Russian capital outfit on the brink of another comeback in a week of European comebacks. He has two goals in 11 worldwide appearance. Aaron Ramsey scored in stoppage time to complete the comeback for the Gunners.

Marseille recovered from losing 1-0 away to RB Leipzig last week, and from falling behind to the Germans inside two minutes in the return at the Velodrome, as they won 5-2 on the night to progress 5-3 on aggregate.

Goals from Bouna Sarr, Florian Thauvin, Hiroki Sakai, Dimitri Payet and an own goal from Stefan Ilsanker ensured the hosts' passage into the final four.

The visitors scored a second when Jean-Kevin Augustin's superb free kick turned the tie in Leipzig's favour again in the 55th minute.
