A brace from Arsenal striker,Alexandre Lacazette has helped his side go past Valencia with a 3-1 home win at Emirates Stadium.
Mouctar Diakhaby had earlier given his Valencia side a lead 11 minutes into the game before Lacazette took over a pass from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s that leveled.
Seven minutes later, the Frenchman nodded in Granit Xhaka’s cross to make it 2-1 before end of half-time.
And Aubameyang’s late volley ensured Arsenal take a two-goal lead to Spain.
However, the Gunners will travel to Valencia for the second leg next Thursday.
