Diego Simeone says he expects to have a tough test against Arsenal in the Europa League.

Atletico Madrid were paired against Arsenal in the semifinals of the Europa League, after narrowly passing Sporting.

But, amid a campaign where Simeone is “learning most about being a coach”, the 47-year-old is braced for a difficult battle with Wenger.

“With their history they are a very strong rival,” Simeone said of the Gunners.

“They have a very important coach who is very capable with plenty of experience and quality footballers.

“We know English football and at home they are very strong. It is a 50-50.”
