Arsenal vs. Stade Rennes - Football Match Report

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.

Ismaila Sarr featured for Rennes's 3-1 win over Arsenal in the Europa League a couple of weeks ago and reports have it that the Gunners made contact with the player immediately after that game.

"We said that if we were meant to go out, we'd go out with a big performance", Cech added.

"I said to the players today, I'm excited (about) this competition, but it's exciting not only for the possibility to go to the Champions League, but also because it's one title", he said.

Gabon worldwide Aubameyang is more used to featuring in the Champions League than Europe's second-tier competition, but his early impact with a goal and an assist was decisive for the Gunners.

Following their 2-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday, success in the Europa League appeared a little less urgent, and victory here marks a return to form under Emery.

Emery could have more transfer funds available if the Spanish head coach is able to steer Arsenal back into the top four in his first season in charge.

Rennes, needing only an away goal to take the advantage, looked committed to making a fight of it in the second half and twice hit the post in the first 20 minutes after the break. "And the last teams, they are all very important, and it's going to be very hard", Emery said.
