Arsenal eased into the semi-final of the Europa League with a 3-0 aggregate win over Napoli.
Following their 2-0 victory at the Emirates last week, Unai Emery’s side were bracing themselves for a tough trip to Naples.
But Alexandre Lacazette’s stunning first-half free-kick killed the tie once and for all.
The home side put the Gunners under pressure but couldn’t take any of their chances as Arsenal came away with an impressive clean sheet.
In fact, things were so comfortable that one player decided to leave the pitch for five minutes.

Nacho Monreal slyly left the pitch before the hour mark.
The commentators on BT Sport made note of it but nothing further was said.
Then, about five minutes later, the Spaniard could be seen returning.
What happened there?
Well, Arsenal fans didn’t hesitate in jumping to conclusions and insisted that the defender must have gone for a quick poo!
Check out the reaction on social media:
Unfortunately, no reporters asked Monreal the all-important question after the game but he certainly wouldn’t have been the first player to do something similar in the middle of a game.
Former Southampton Jason Puncheon was once forced to leave the pitch during a Premier League clash with Everton back in 2013.
It led to the home fans chanting “Jason Puncheon, he went for a s**t.”
When you gotta go, you gotta go.
Luckily for Monreal, Arsenal didn’t concede while he was apparently in the toilet as they breezed into the last four.
