Diego Costa terrorised Arsenal once again as he sent Atletico Madrid to the Europa League final, scoring the only goal in the 1-0 win against the Gunners.
Costa, who was brilliant in seeing off Arsene Wenger’s side with his overall presence and link up play with Antoine Griezmann, was a nuisance for his opponents.
With the tie delicately poised at 1-1 on aggregate approaching half-time in the second leg at the Wanda Metropolitano, the 29-year-old’s composure in the box gave his side a crucial lead at a vital time.
It was a resolute performance by the former Chelsea striker and the majority of Blues supporters miss the times of him constantly leading the line at Stamford Bridge.
The worst time to concede a goal!
