Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang celebrates the opener against Rennes at the Emirates

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice to help send Arsenal into the Europa League quarter-finals, beating Rennes 3-0 at the Emirates (4-3 on aggregate).

Arsenal put in a disappointing performance in France a week ago, which saw Rennes lead the tie 3-1, but the hosts got off to a quick start as Aubameyang (5) and Ainsley Maitland-Niles (15) netted early on.

Aubameyang – who was superb in attack – then added his second of the evening as he slotted home in the 72nd minute to ensure Arsenal went through, winning 4-3 on aggregate.

They will now go into the quarter-final draw, which will take place on Friday, alongside fellow Premier League side Chelsea, who beat Dynamo Kyiv 8-0 on aggregate earlier in the day.
