Arsenal ready to embrace pressure of either Champions League path

Valencia's Geoffrey Kondogbia left and Krasnodar's Mauricio Pereyra compete for the ball in Russia

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang said wearing a Black Panther mask after scoring a Europa League goal for Arsenal was a tribute to Gabon. Although they have no more top-six teams to face in the Premier League this season, they play more away than home fixtures.

"The 3-1 loss away put us in a very hard situation, but we knew how to deal with that and we got what we deserved". Two teams are going out and the Europa League is giving us a big opportunity also to take one way to go to the Champions League.

Gabon global Aubameyang opened the scoring in the fifth minute then settled nerves at Emirates Stadium with the Gunners' third goal in the second half.

The celebration coincides with the release of the Black Panther-less Avengers: Endgame trailer - if you want to know why he's not in it, go see Infinity War - and it also honors Aubameyang's bloodlines.

Virgil van Dijk's Statistics From Bayern Munich Game Are Unbelievable
He was the orchestrator in Munich and looked like a teenager playing among 10-year-olds, so comfortable was he on the ball. Van Dijk has made a total of 37 club appearances this season, keeping a remarkable 19 clean sheets in that time.

For their part, Rennes grew into the match a little more following a sluggish start and tested Petr Cech before half time through a long-range strike from Hatem Ben Arfa.

In the past the striker has worn Batman and Spiderman masks to toast goals - but he explained why this time was a special moment.

After the game, he said: 'I needed a mask who represents me. The Gabonese national team's nickname is "Les Panthères" and the federation's badge is literally a black panther. Regarding the Lacazette decision, the commission decided that his elbow against BATE was only worth a two-game ban.

"There were quite a few things that went against us over the past couple of days".
