Aubameyang Inspires Comeback as Arsenal Reach Europa League Last 8

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang inspired an Arsenal comeback as they overturned a two-goal deficit from the first leg and reached the Europa League quarter-finals with a 4-3 aggregate win over Rennes.

The striker put the Gunners ahead within four minutes, firing in Aaron Ramsey's cut-back, before setting up Ainsley Maitland-Niles before half-time at Emirates Stadium.

He then poked in Sead Kolasinac's low cross after the break to make it 3-0.

Arsenal will be in the draw for the quarter-finals on Friday at 12:00 GMT.

They join fellow English side Chelsea in the last eight after they thrashed Dynamo Kiev 8-0 on aggregate.

It is the second successive season Arsenal have made it through to the last eight – they were knocked out in the semi-finals last year following a 2-1 aggregate defeat by Atletico Madrid.

Aubameyang was energetic, efficient and dangerous throughout and it was his willingness to chase the ball down which led to the second goal.

There was some fortune as he appeared to be offside when Ramsey's threaded pass was kept in on the byeline but with no video assistant referee, Maitland-Niles finished off the move with a thumping header in the centre.

Aubameyang continued to play with confidence – trying an audacious overhead kick in the first half, before poking in Arsenal's third goal after 72 minutes.

He celebrated by putting on a Black Panther mask which had been stored behind the goal – the latest in his trademark superhero celebrations, which earned him a booking. (BBC)
