With sides such as Inter and Sevilla out of the competition, Arsenal are being considered one of the favourites to go all the way and win the competition.
The 36-year-old, who is set to retire at the end of the season, has been largely used as Arsenal's cup goalkeeper, with Bernd Leno the first choice in the Premier League, as he looks to win a second Europa League title before retiring.
They did exactly that, overturning the deficit against Stade Rennais by winning the 2nd leg 3-0 at the Emirates to advance to the quarter-finals of the Europa League.
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.
However, it was not forthcoming and with VAR not in operation in the Europa League unlike the more lucrative Champions League, Maitland-Niles's downward header from Aubameyang's cross was allowed to stand. "And the last teams, they are all very important, and it's going to be very hard", Emery said. VAR does not settle everything.

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.
But he says he will be supporting the Londoners and feels that Emery knows exactly how to handle the occasion. "In Gabon we call the national team the Panthers".
And it was Arsenal who had to compromise since they had finished below Chelsea in the Premier League last season.
