Arsenal romped towards the Europa League semi-finals with a 4-1 thrashing of CSKA Moscow on Thursday in a match devoid of any of the political tension that threatened to overshadow the tie due to frosty relations between London and the Russian capital.

Lacazette scored his second and Arsenal's fourth when Ozil's cut-back found him on the edge of the box and the France striker took one touch before firing his 12th goal of the season into the bottom corner.

Arsenal had several chances to extend its lead in the second half and Ramsey went close to his second career hat trick when he struck the post in the 78th minute.

While CSKA were unable to cope with Arsenal's speed of thought and movement at the back, they exposed the Gunners' own defensive weaknesses.

Arsenal endured four consecutive losses over February and March, including back-to-back 3-0 defeats to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final and in the Premier League.

Elsewhere, Lazio edged a six-goal thriller 4-2 against Salzburg as all four home sides took an advantage into the second leg.

Wenger confirmed after the game that keeper David Ospina, who suffered an ankle injury on the eve of the game, will be out for between two and three weeks while Mkhitaryan, who was substituted, will miss Sunday's game against Southampton with a damaged knee.

Against the run of play, Aleksandr Golovin levelled in the 15th minute with a dipping, curling free-kick that flew into the top corner beyond the dive of goalkeeper Petr Cech.

But at the back the away side looked absolutely hapless and that allowed the Gunners to restore their lead in the 23rd minute - Georgy Schennikov clumsily tripping Ozil in the area and Lacazette confidently dispatched the resulting spot-kick.

The Gunners boss expects his team to go into the showdown in confident mood having "recovered from a crisis" to win their last four games.

He also had a goal ruled out for offside while the game was goalless before Arsenal went on to deliver a masterclass in attacking football. Ozil at his best.

Atletico, Europa League winners in 2012, extended their winning home streak in all competitions to nine games after Koke scored inside the opening 30 seconds and Antoine Griezmann added the second shortly before halftime. They will not be chasing the game.

However, with only around 200 CSKA fans making the long journey west, there was little bad blood inside the ground for the quarter-final first leg.

Alexandre Lacazette has scored 10 goals in his last 13 Europa League appearances, these being his first two for Arsenal in the competition (after scoring eight for Lyon).
