Ainsley Maitland-Niles doubled Arsenal's lead in the first half and put the Premier League side in a comfortable position.

Only one side in Europa League knockout history had previously successfully overturned a 3-1 first-leg defeat - Fulham downing Serie A giants Juventus in 2009-10 - but Arsenal moved into the quarters, where they could face London rivals Chelsea.

Aubameyang is Arsenal's top scorer this season with 22 and they are through to the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

Unai Emery's men will await their quarterfinal opponent pending the Europa League draw, which will be held at UEFA headquarters in Nyon on Friday.

"We can be proud of our players today because it was a very hard week - (Manchester) United on Sunday and today against Rennes".

While success in the Europa League is seen by many as, first and foremost, a route back into the premier European club competition, Emery - who won the trophy three years in a row at Sevilla - knows it offers much more than that. "And the last teams, they are all very important, and it's going to be very hard", Emery said.

Arsenal made the flawless start after Maitland-Niles played the ball into Aaron Ramsey who squared for Aubameyang to slot home from close range to put the Gunners 1-0 ahead after only three minutes.

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

After scoring Aubameyang donned a Black Panther mask to celebrate, and he explained why afterwards.

"I needed the mask to represent me", Aubameyang said to BT Sport after his sixth brace of the season in all competitions.

Rennes boss Julien Stephan questioned that decision - as well as another possible sending off for Lacazette in north London and Aubameyang being offside for the crucial second Arsenal goal.

"Black Panther.in Africa and Gabon we are called the Black Panthers so it represents me - that's it".
