Unai Emery hails Arsenal for 'growing up under pressure' after Europa win

Aubameyang 'visits' Wakanda with Black Panther mask in Arsenal win

Substitute Alex Iwobi rifled wide from the edge of the penalty area as Arsenal tried to settle the tie before Aubameyang came up with what proved the decisive goal in the 72nd minute.

Arsenal needed a big second leg against Stade Rennais on Thursday, and what they got was a performance worthy of Wakanda from its best player.

After celebrating his second goal in Arsenal's 3-0 win in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday night by putting on a special mask, African superstar Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang explained the reason for his new celebration.

The 4-3 aggregate win came on the back of a similar scenario in the round of 32 - where a surprise defeat at BATE Borisov had to be reversed at the Emirates Stadium last month.

However, it was not forthcoming and with VAR not in operation in the Europa League unlike the more lucrative Champions League, Maitland-Niles's downward header from Aubameyang's cross was allowed to stand. The French side did get a few fantastic chances, but the Gunners maintained their defensive organization quite well, seeing the offside flag go up a number of times on the Rennes forwards.

Aubameyang had not scored in the competition since September so breaking his duck to get Arsenal up and running was timely, then he struck again late on for his sixth brace of the season in all competitions.

Very hard week, United on Sunday and Rennes today. "And the last teams, they are all very important, and it's going to be very hard", Emery said.

"I missed us being a bit more controlled with the ball, but they left a lot of attacking players in the final third which gave us space to attack them".

"This comeback was very hard, but I think the reaction was very good from every player", Emery told reporters. Having said that, I think that away goal was crucial for us.

"Playing under pressure is good".

"We are going to think the same before every match".
