Aubameyang: Black Panther mask was for Gabon

WATCH: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Celebrates Second Goal vs. Rennes With Black Panther Mask

Arsenal needed a fast start and they got one, opening the scoring in the fifth minute when Maitland-Niles and Aaron Ramsey combined down the right channel to tee up Aubameyang for a simple close-range finish.

The striker rushed over to an advertising hoarding and opened a drawstring bag to produce the disguise as he bagged the third goal to help Arsenal to overturn a 3-1 first-leg deficit to beat Rennes.

Arsenal will discover their quarter-final opponent at tomorrow's draw in Nyon, with Chelsea, Napoli and Eintracht Frankfurt the teams Emery will be hoping to avoid.

"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 the last teams, they are all very important, and it's going to be very hard", Emery said.

Arsenal have missed out on Champions League football for the last two seasons, and their poor away record remains a big concerns.

"In the domestic league, like here, we have six teams playing to be in the top four".

"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.

The ill-tempered feel to the match continued throughout a nervy second half as a number of strong challenges went unpunished.

After scoring Aubameyang donned a Black Panther mask to celebrate, and he explained why afterwards.

Arsenal made the ideal 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.

While Sokratis was forced to sit out the second leg, Arsenal were able to call on Alexandre Lacazette after his three-match ban for a red card in the previous round was reduced to two games on appeal and, having already served both of those games, so took his place in the side.
