Spain’s last chance of having a side in a European final ended when Valencia were beaten 2-4 by Arsenal on Thursday evening. The Ches started well, and Gameiro gave them hope of overturning the 3-1 first leg defeat when he opened the scoring in the tenth minute. However Aubameyang equalised for Unai Emery's team a few minutes later, and some five minutes in to the second half Lacazette put the game beyond their reach with a second away goal. Gameiro got his second of the night after that, but Aubameyang scored two more to complete his hat-trick and take the Premier League team through to a meeting with their neighbours Chelsea in the final.
