‘It represents me!’ - Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang explains goal celebration

Aubameyang 'visits' Wakanda with Black Panther mask in Arsenal win WATCH: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Celebrates Second Goal vs. Rennes With Black Panther Mask

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.

Aubameyang made it 3-0 just as nerves were starting to jangle at the Emirates, finishing off a fine move to put the Gunners ahead on aggregate for the first time in the tie as Emery continued his bid to win the trophy for a fourth time.

Meanwhile, Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have made it to the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Although they have no more top-six teams to face in the Premier League this season, they play more away than home fixtures. I said to the players today, I am excited about this competition. "And the last teams, they are all very important, and it's going to be very hard", Emery said.

Aubameyang missed two big chances inside a minute to complete his first hat-trick in Arsenal colours, poking wide of the post with just Koubek to beat and then skewing wide of the same post once teed up by Ramsey in front of goal.

"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".

The Gabonese striker then proceeded to celebrate by putting on a Black Panther mask, which he was duly booked for by the referee.

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

With the Ligue 1 side leading 3-1 from the first leg, Aubameyang and Ainsley Maitland-Niles scored in the first 15 minutes of Thursday's return to draw Arsenal level on aggregate.

"It's a Black Panther and in Africa, in Gabon we call the national team the panthers of Gabon".

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.
