  • GOOOAAALLL! Arsenal have a crucial early goal, Aubameyang makes it 3-2 on aggregate. Excellent quick football by the Gunners, they open up the Rennes defence, with Ramsey playing a low cross into the box and the striker just managed to get ahead of his marker at the near post and poke the ball past Koubek and into the back of the net.

Aubameyang and Ramsey play a quick one-two inside the Rennes penalty area, with the striker just managing to keep the ball in play and chipping it towards the far post, where Maitland-Niles rose highest and powered the ball into the back of the net.
