Arsenal vs. Stade Rennes - Football Match Report

Plenty of players have used masks while celebrating but do you recognise them

Meanwhile, Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have made it to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Arsenal came into the match trailing 3-1 after the first leg, but wasted no time cutting into their aggregate deficit when Aubameyang poked home a seeing-eye cross from Aaron Ramsey at the near post.

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.

"In the domestic league, like here, we have six teams playing to be in the top four". Two teams are going out and the Europa League is giving us a big opportunity also to take one way to go to the Champions League.

"I said to the players today, I'm excited (about) this competition, but it's exciting not only for the possibility to go to the Champions League, but also because it's one title", he said.

After scoring Aubameyang donned a Black Panther mask to celebrate, and he explained why afterwards.

Gabon global Aubameyang is more used to featuring in the Champions League than Europe's second-tier competition, but his early impact with a goal and an assist was decisive for the Gunners.

In the past the striker has worn Batman and Spiderman masks to toast goals - but he explained why this time was a special moment. "I needed a mask to represent me, so I chose the Black Panther, because in Gabon we call the national team..."

Arsenal made the flawless start after Maitland-Niles played the ball into Aaron Ramsey who squared for Aubameyang to slot home from close range to put the Gunners 1-0 ahead after only three minutes.

Aubameyang then struck again in the second-half, tapping in a great cross from Sead Kolasinac to seal progress to the next last eight.

"On the offside, it was very clearly an injustice, it was an error", he said. "There's a long way to go but with performances like that, we can compete".
