End of Match

24' Bukayo Saka
76' Alexandre Lacazette
88' Pepe is coming off now. Replaced by Balogun.
84' No sign of a threat by Slavia, really, and that is testament to Arsenal’s defensive shape. Still looking organised. You sense they want this performance to be complete.
76' GOAL! SLAVIA PRAGUE 0-4 ARSENAL (Lacazette, 76, Agg: 1-5)
Lacazette nets his second of the evening!!!
71' Tecl replaces Kuchta.
70' A rare Slavia counter in this second half as Provod goes on a mazy run down the left, before cutting back and having an effort on goal, but Chambers is there to make a good block.
65' Smith Rowe, after a fine performance, is replaced by Elneny
63' Yellow Card to Peter Olayinka.
62' Just over an hour gone then in Prague and Arsenal are in cruise control, keeping the ball nicely in the second half and defending with ease against opponents who have all but given up on this tie.
Lacazette goes over in the box,m but the referee says 'no penalty' and it did look as though the France forward had slipped there in the box.
53' Arsenal really are cruising towards the semi-finals of the Europa League.
Slavia Prague haven't put them under any pressure. Simply rolled over.
51' Zima shows some adventure and gets forward into Arsenal's penalty area.
The centre-back cuts the ball onto his left foot and gets a shot off, but his effort is blocked behind for a corner.
49' Arsenal win the first corner of the second half which Ceballos floats to the far post, only for Slavia Prague to clear the danger.
48' Saka, Arsenal’s best player so far, lopes down the and then chops back on to his left foot and delivers a useful cross.
46' Slavia Prague made three changes for the second period, with Lingr, Maospust and Dorley replacing Stanciu, Hromada and Boril.
46' Second Half begins..
H-T SLAVIA PRAGUE 0 - 3 Arsenal
45' There will be a minimum of 2' added time.
43' Arsenal are still trying to break forward with pace and numbers when they can and they are finding plenty of space in behind in order to do so.
38' Some nice play on the edge of Arsenal's penalty area falls to Stanciu.

The attacking midfielder takes the shot on, but his effort is blocked by Arsenal midfield.
34' Holding goes over in the box, with Arsenal's players all wanting a penalty, but the big defender has actually kicked his own leg trying to get that shot away!
28' Slavia Prague look stunned by what has happened in the opening period of the game, they seemed so confident prior to the disallowed goal and since then it has been all Arsenal.
Arsenal are in dreamland as they now lead 3-0 after a third lightening quick break.
21' Captain keeps his cool from the spot to send Kolar the wrong way to double Arsenal's lead - what a start to the game by Arsenal!
16' NO GOAL!
The goal is chalked off for offside against Smith Rowe and the crowd inside the Eden Arena ROAR!
13' Vital interception by Sevcik, otherwise the pacy Pepe was away on goal just then.
10' Slavia Prague have kept a clean sheet in four of their last six home games in European competition, conceding just three goals in total in this run.
8' Slavia look pretty comfortable in possession at the moment, they hold the advantage due to away goals, so if it remained goalless here, they would progress. Arsenal have to push forward at some point and score.
4' It is now Slavia who are keeping the ball nicely in midfield, they are keeping Arsenal inside their own half, soaking up the pressure.
2' Pepe wins his side the first corner of the game, from the left, but Slavia Prague clear their lines.
