Arsenal thrash Rennes 3-0 to reach Eurpoa quater-finals
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, BBC reports.
The striker put Arsenal 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.
