Aubameyang 'visits' Wakanda with Black Panther mask in Arsenal win

Ainsley Maitland-Niles added Arsenal's 2nd goal just 10 minutes later, after a cross from Aubameyang following some excellent work out wide found the head of the onrushing full-back. If Chelsea can make it past Slavia Prague they will face the winners of Eintracht Frankfurt or Benfica, who were the opponents in the final in 2013.

Moreso since the Gunners will play the second leg of the Europa League quarter-finals away from home.

"The Champions League is very important, but the Europa League grew up a lot, now giving every team the possibility to play in the Champions League".

In the Premier League, Arseanl's top-four hopes should be boosted by the fact that they have a relatively kind run-in - with no remaining fixtures against their "big six" rivals.

But Arsenal, on the other hand, will take on Napoli who moved into the Europa League after failing to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League.

"But also it is one title".

Jurgen Klopp's side were handed the kindest possible Champions League draw as they were pitted against Portuguese outsiders Porto.

"It's also because it's one title and I think we can feel the possibility to win one title, doing this way with a hard moment like today and playing also against big teams".

"And create with our supporters a big atmosphere".

Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has explained the motive behind his unique Black Panther mask celebration he pulled off against Rennes.

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

"It's a Black Panther and in Africa, in Gabon we call the national team the panthers of Gabon". In the past Arsenal have struggled to break down sides, and they still do sometimes, but the striker's performance today won the match.
