The Rossoneri lost the first leg of their Europa League Round of 16 tie 2-0 at home to Arsenal, with a deflected Henrikh Mkhitaryan strike and Aaron Ramsey springing the offside trap.

Wenger desperately needed a positive result after coming under pressure for a run of four straight defeats, and he got just that against a Milan side who saw a 13-match unbeaten run ended.

In other results, Dortmund were stunned at home 2-1 by Austrian side Salzburg while Lyon pipped CSKA Moscow 1-0 in Russian Federation.

Seven-time European champions Milan are a shadow of the force they once were, languishing in seventh place in Serie A despite spending more than £200m last summer in a bid to change their fortunes. "That's what we did tonight", Wenger told a news conference.

The Gunners, though, almost overturned the massive deficit in the return leg with a 3-0 victory at the Emirates, which went down as one of the classic fixtures of the modern Champions League era.

"Overall, it is important to win, but it is not qualification". Ozil played a fine pass into Ramsey's path and the Wales midfielder rounded Donnarumma for an easy finish.

Giacomo Bonaventura scooped a shot over when he should have done better, while Suso drilled a left-footed strike out for a throw-in.

All the return legs come up on Thursday, March 15.

Kosovo global Valon Berisha scored twice shortly after half-time to put Salzburg in control, the first from the penalty spot, and leave German giants Dortmund facing a surprise exit.

However, their display could not help but give the impression that, even in their lowest moments, it would be foolish to write off their chances of somehow going on to win the Europa League and secure a route back into the Champions League.
