Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang inspired an Arsenal comeback as they overturned a two-goal deficit from the first leg and reached the Europa League quarter-finals courtesy of a 4-3 aggregate win over French club, Rennes.


The striker put the Gunners ahead within four minutes, firing in Aaron Ramsey’s cut-back, before setting up Ainsley Maitland-Niles before half-time at Emirates Stadium.


He then poked in Sead Kolasinac’s low cross after the break to make it 3-0.


Arsenal will be in the draw for the quarter-finals today as they join fellow English side, Chelsea in the last eight after they thrashed Dynamo Kiev 8-0 on aggregate.


It is the second successive season Arsenal have made it through to the last eight.


The Gunners were knocked out in the semi-finals last year following a 2-1 aggregate defeat by Atletico Madrid.


Arsenal next travel to Newcastle in the English Premier League next month following the international break.


However, they have organised a friendly against Al-Nasr Dubai SC next week, as part of a training camp in Dubai.
