Arsenal take on Rennes at the Emirates, with Unai Emery’s side having it all to do at the Emirates.

With the Gunners 3-1 down after the first-leg in France, Arsenal very much in trouble.

A good clean sheet and performance against Manchester United means Unai Emery’s side go into the game with momentum on their side.

And with Alexandre Lacazette available, supporters will be hoping the striker can add to his 13 goals so far this season.

Gunners legend Charlie Nicholas holds a similar optimism and predicts Arsenal to win after extra time.

The Sky Sports pundit wrote in his column: ‘I was questioning the goalkeeper with an inconsistent defence in front of him but he has been excellent in recent weeks. Leno is quite bold and tries to play out from the back. He blocks with the boot rather than his hands a lot of the timebut it works very well for him. He will make mistakes but who doesn’t? Arsenal have signed a top-class goalkeeper I feel.

‘Lucas Torreira will probably play again after being suspended for the United win but with no Alexandre Lacazette, who is suspended, I would play Alex Iwobi with Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey. There was pace, commitment and togetherness in there against United.

‘Play the same system and I expect Arsenal to go through. The away goal they scored in France will prove to be crucial in my opinion. 3-1. Arsenal to win in extra time’
