Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang double helps Arsenal reach last eight

Napoli beat Red Bull Salzburg 4-3 on aggregate in the Europa League last 16

He won every major honour available during his 11 years as a Chelsea player, including the Europa League in 2013, and joined Arsenal two years later.

Arsenal take on a Napoli side who narrowly missed out on qualification from the Champions League group stage after finishing third behind Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool.

"The match schedule for the quarter-finals (including a potential reversal involving Arsenal FC) will be communicated to all parties at approximately 14.45 CET on Friday 15 March".

Rennes had made the most of facing 10 men for 50 minutes of the first leg following the dismissal of Sokratis Papastathopoulos - turning a 1-0 deficit into a 3-1 win.

Arsenal makes two changes from the side that beat Manchester United at the weekend as the Gunners host Rennes in the Europa 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.

"On the offside, it was very clearly an injustice, it was an error", he said.

"Nothing was in the way of the assistant referee, who took much less time to raise his flag in the second half (when Rennes were attacking)".

Chelsea were always in a great position to get to the last eight.

This is not the first time Aubameyang has celebrated in this fashion - he pulled on a Spiderman mask several times after scoring while at previous club Borussia Dortmund.

But he says he will be supporting the Londoners and feels that Emery knows exactly how to handle the occasion.

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

"In Gabon, we call the national team the Panthers so that's why I wore it".

But Aubameyang's blushes were spared as Arsenal held out to continue the Premier League's resurgence and leave France without a single representative in the quarter-finals of either European competition.
