Salzburg stages remarkable fightback to sink Lazio

Salzburg forced Lazio into a second-half capitulation as the Italians crashed out in the Europa League quarter-finals after losing 4-1 but Olympique de Marseille staged a thrilling fightback to see off visitors Leipzig 5-2 on Thursday.

Bookies' favourites, Atletico Madrid also lost 1-0 to Sporting Lisbon in Portugal but advanced after winning the first leg 2-0 in Spain.

Elneny then sent Ramsey - scorer of a brace in the first leg - away to score Arsenal's equaliser on the night in stoppage time.

"It should be every year".

"Everybody speaks about Atletico Madrid".

Koke put Atletico in front after only 23 seconds of the first leg but they were on the back foot in the early stages in Lisbon. "They were mobile and technically good and they gave us many problems".

They'll be trying to emulate city rivals Roma, who shocked Barcelona to enter the Champions League semi-finals, and don't hold back ahead of Sunday's Derby della Capitale showdown in Serie A. "We were close to a comeback but we were not close enough".
