Arsenal vs Rennes confirmed starting line-ups



Arsenal host Rennes in the Europa League on Thursday aiming to book their place in the quarter-finals of the competition.

The Gunners face a difficult test at the Emirates Stadium having been beaten 3-1 in France last week.

They started brightly with Alex Iwobi’s opener, but Rennes bagged three goals without replay after Sokratis Papastathopoulos was sent off.

Unai Emery’s side have won five home games in a row in all competitions and are unbeaten at the Emirates in Europe this term.

Rennes lost two out of three away matches during the group stage, but won 3-1 at Real Betis in the round of 32.

This is the 16th successive campaign in which Arsenal have reached the last 16 of a major European competition.
