Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Celebrates Second Goal vs. Rennes With Black Panther Mask

Rennes tactics on the other hand simply seemed to be a desire to get an Arsenal player sent off just like last week when Sokratis saw red for tangling with Ismalia Sarr.

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.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice and also teed up Ainsley Maitland-Niles as Arsenal joined Chelsea in Friday's Europa League quarter-final draw after Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham led the way in the Champions League.

The club celebrated qualification to the quarter final stage after overcoming RB Salzburg 4-3 on aggregate despite losing 3-1 on Thursday, however, this injury news will surely put a dampener on what has otherwise been a great week for the club.

However, Rennes will consider themselves hard done by in defeat. Upon further inspection, Aubameyang was offside in the lead-up to the goal, and Rennes will feel hard-done by the lack of VAR and the incompetence of the officiating.

That's because Maitland-Niles' goal should not have stood.

North Korea threatened on Friday to suspend negotiations with the USA and resume nuclear and missile testing, BBC News reported. He said he had spoken to his South Korean counterpart but wanted to consult with other US officials before responding further.

The smoke had barely died down from the red flares the Rennes fans let off in the away end before the home side had pulled the aggregate score back to 2-3 with practically the whole game to play.

"It was very clearly an injustice, it was a manifest error", Stéphan said.

'It was hard for us because we had to play with 10 men for about 50 minutes of that first game as well.

"I think today we played very consistently over 90 minutes, being competitive without the ball and very serious defensively".

"This comeback was very hard, but I think the reaction was very good from every player", Emery told reporters. Playing under pressure and growing up under pressure, each player, as a team, they feel hard moments to give us our best performance.

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