Arsenal v Rennes Match Report, 14/3/19, UEFA Europa League”

Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette all feature in a glittering attacking lineup as Arsenal look for some early goals to overturn the 3-1 deficit from the first leg.

He set up Ainsley Maitland-Niles for the second ten minutes later to put the Gunners ahead on away goals.

Following their 2-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday, success in the Europa League appeared a little less urgent, and victory here marks a return to form under Emery.

And the Gunners were soon on level terms in the tie, Maitland-Niles arriving at the back post to steer home a downward header from Aubameyang's cross, Rennes having paused for an offside flag that did not come.

Aubameyang, who was cautioned for his celebration after the goal, missed two golden opportunities to extend the league in the closing minutes, chipping wide on one effort and scuffing a shot from close range after being left all alone in front of the net.

Rennes gave Arsenal a real scare shortly after the half-time restart as Ismaila Sarr picked out the post with his shot, which took a touch on its way through, after Shkodran Mustafi was caught on the ball.

Aubameyang previously wore a Spiderman mask after scoring a goal for Borussia Dortmund in 2014 and used a Batman mask to celebrate another against Schalke in 2015.

After 15 minutes of the second leg, it seemed as though Arsenal were going to cruise into the quarter-finals.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice and set up another to earn Arsenal a 3-0 second-leg win over Rennes on Thursday evening, seeing them through to the quarter-finals 4-3 on aggregate.

He should have eased Arsenal nerves by completing his hat-trick with two gilt-edged chances in the final eight minutes.

Arsenal are through to the next round of the Europa League after mounting a mighty comeback against Rennes.
