Peter Olayinka was in action for Slavia Prague but couldn’t prevent Arsenal from hammering his side 4-0 at home in the Europa League quarterfinal on Thursday.
The Gunners who suffered a shock 1-1 draw in the first leg at the Emirates, cruised to the semifinals on a 5-1 aggregate.
A brace from Alexandre Lacazette and a goal each from Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe earned Arsenal their first big win a European championship since their 5-1 Champions League victory over Inter Milan in November 2003.
The Gunners’ victory ended Slavia Prague’s 33-game unbeaten run at home.
Arsenal will now face Samuel Chukwueze’s Villarreal who beat Dinamo 2-1 in the reverse fixture to advance 3-1 on aggregate.
The semifinal will also see the Yellow Submarine head coach Unai Emery come face to face against former club Arsenal.
