“Nightmare”- Spanish papers react to Valencia 2-4 Arsenal

“Pesadilla” (Nightmare) ran the headline of Spanish newspaper Super Deporte, as local club Valencia exited out of Europe following a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang masterpiece at the Mestalla. VCF had prided themselves on their home defence coming into this fixture and would’ve fancied a shot at Arsenal, known to struggle on the road, but Aubameyang’s excellent hat-trick sent Spain’s last remaining representatives in European competition crashing out. With their 4-2 win at the Mestalla, Arsenal won 7-3 on aggregate, and VCF followed Barca in exiting from Europe.

It also means that both European club finals will be all-English affairs (Liverpool-Tottenham and Arsenal-Chelsea), and AS was quick to run a headline implying that Brexit didn’t apply for football!
