Aubameyang double caps Arsenal comeback to reach Europa League quarters

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. Napoli are one of the favourites in the competition but his side will believe you have to beat the best to be the best.

Europa League remains an excellent route for Arsenal to get back into the Champions League, and with there being no clear-cut favourite at the moment, Unai Emery will be hoping that his past successes give his side the upper-hand as the tournament moves forward.

Following his second goal, Aubameyang pulled out and put on a mask of Marvel superhero Black Panther, which he has since stated was a dedication to his homeland.

Speaking after Arsenal were drawn against Serie A side Napoli in the last eight, Cech has insisted that the intensity of Premier League games has benefited the top six in Europe. 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.

The draw for the Champions League and Europa League quarter-finals will take place later today.

"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".

But 18 minutes from time, Arsenal had a cushion when Sead Kolasinac's wonderful low cross left Aubameyang with a simple task to tap home his 22nd goal of the season and celebrated by pulling on a Black Panther mask.

"I needed a mask which represents me", he told BT Sport.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Aubameyang netted the opening goal of the match just five minutes after hostilities commenced, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles increasing Arsenal lead in the 15th minute after scoring Arsenal second goal. "In Gabon we call the national team the Panthers", he said after the game. "And the last teams, they are all very important, and it's going to be very hard", Emery said.
