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

Chelsea's Callum Hudson Odoi scores his side's fifth goal as they swept aside woeful Dynamo Kiev

Trailing 3-1 after the first leg Aubameyang got Arsenal off to the ideal start in the first five minutes, turning home Aaron Ramsey's cross.

After the win, Arsenal is through to the quarterfinals of the Europa League and now sits in fourth place in Premier League standings, just one point behind Tottenham (61) for third. Not sure what else to say.

Arsenal welcome Rennes to the Emirates for the second leg of the Europa League Round of 16 this Thursday.

We doubled our advantage just 10 minutes later when Aubameyang combined with Ramsey before crossing for Ainsley Maitland-Niles to head home at the far post for 2-0 in the 15th minute.

Rennes gave Arsenal a real scare shortly after the half-time restart as Ismaila Sarr picked out the post with his shot, which took a touch on its way through, after Shkodran Mustafi was caught on the ball.


Aubameyang broke down the left flank then cut the ball inside to Ramsey, who looked to initially put Sead Kolasinac in with a ball in behind, but the Bosnian knew he was offside so didn't play for the ball.

Aubameyang previously wore a Spiderman mask after scoring a goal for Borussia Dortmund in 2014 and used a Batman mask to celebrate another against Schalke in 2015. Well, that was until Aubameyang struck in the second half to complete his brace and extended their lead.

As expected, the visitors mounted more of an attacking effort in the second half, as they sought out a game-changing goal, but their decision making in the final third was sloppy and the Gabonese forward snuck a tap-in in the 71st minute to all but seal their progression to the last eight.

- Arsenal have overhauled a two-goal deficit from the first leg of a European tie for the first time since the Fairs Cup final against Anderlecht in 1970.

- Maitland-Niles was the 12th Arsenal player to score in the Europa League this season, the most of any side in the competition (excluding own-goals).
