It was an atmosphere full of celebration on Thursday night, in the last lap of the Europa league round 16 as the visiting side Arsenal found the back net of their opponent (Rennes) three (3) times.
With these goals, the Gunners qualify to the quarter finals. The Emery led side earlier lost 3-1 in the leg to Rennes which was as traumatizing on Arsenal players as they were fears of crashing out of the Europa league.
