How to watch Arsenal vs. Valencia in the first leg of the Europa League semifinals on Thursday, May 2.
Arsenal hosts Valencia in the first leg of a UEFA Europa League semifinal on Thursday, May 2. Kickoff from Emirates Stadium in London is scheduled for 3 p.m. ET.
In its quarterfinal matchup with Napoli, Arsenal advanced on a 3-0 aggregate triumph. Arsenal, which currently sits in fifth in the Premier League table, has lost its last three matches in the Premier League, however, most recently falling 3-0 to Leicester City on April 28. It has two roads to qualify for next season's Champions League: by finishing in the top four in England or winning the Europa League.
Valencia, meanwhile, defeated Villarreal 5-1 on aggregate in its all-Spanish quarterfinal matchup. Valencia has lost its previous two matches in La Liga, including a 1-0 loss to Eibar on April 28 and, like Arsenal, is fighting for a place in next season's Champions League. It sits three points out of the top four in Spain and could also clinch a berth by winning the UEL title.
