Marseille will take on Salzburg in the semi-final of Europa League, which pits also Arsenal against Atletico Madrid, according to the draw which was held here on Friday.

This makes the Spain international doubtful for the first leg against Arsenal in London on April 26.

Salzburg, who scored three times in five minutes on Thursday to beat Lazio 6-5 on aggregate and become the first Austrian side to reach a European semi-final since 1996, will fancy their chances of reaching the final.

LaLiga outfit Atletico reached the semi-finals 2-1 on aggregate, despite Thursday's 1-0 loss at Sporting CP in Lisbon.

Sitting in second spot in La Liga behind Barcelona, Simeone's men are a playing below their level in the second tier European tournament.

The tie will mark a first European semi-final in nine years for Arsenal and they will be hoping for another year of silverware success after a disappointing domestic campaign. If they win the cup, they'll jump that phase and be in the group stage. With what they have, they tend to do very well in knock-out competitions.

Arsenal are in sixth place in the Premier League table and 13 points adrift of Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspur in the race to secure a place in the Champions League.

Indeed, even lifting the Europa League trophy may not be enough to convince Arsenal that he should see out the final 12 months of his contract.

Extra incentive for Marseille - the final is in Lyon, France.
