Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was unusually wasteful on Thursday night as Arsenal recorded a first-leg draw in their Europa League last-32 tie with Benfica.

Instead, Bukayo Saka’s instant equaliser saw Mikel Arteta’s side leave Italy with a 1-1 draw after Pizzi gave Benfica the lead from the penalty spot.

Arteta named an unchanged side for the first time in his managerial career – Arsenal keeping the same starting XI in successive matches for the first time since a 2-1 win away at Newcastle in the Premier League on 15 September 15 2018.

The Spaniard saw Arsenal crash out at this stage of last season’s Europa League on away goals to Olympiacos, with Aubameyang missing a sitter in the dying stages that night at the Emirates Stadium.
