Arsenal came into the match trailing 3-1 after the first leg, but wasted no time cutting into their aggregate deficit when Aubameyang poked home a seeing-eye cross from Aaron Ramsey at the near post.

"This comeback was very hard, but I think the reaction was very good from every player", Emery told reporters.

"After, I want to take to take better control with the ball and with possession".

And he says not many people would have thought that at the beginning of the campaign.

"We can be proud of our players today because it was a very hard week - (Manchester) United on Sunday and today against Rennes".

Despite going up 2 goals early, the match was never truly secure for Arsenal, who are always prone to defensive mistakes.

"We can be proud today".

'We were confident. We knew after the first leg even if we lost, if we played our game we could win and go to the next round'.

But Arsenal's tempo slipped and a run from Hatem Ben Arfa - an outcast under current Gunners boss Unai Emery at Paris Saint-Germain - ended with a tame shot at Petr Cech.

"These two matches have been very hard", Emery added.

"It has given us a big confidence on Sunday against Manchester United and today, the same I think with this performance and victory". Every team is now important and it's going to be very hard. Although they have no more top-six teams to face in the Premier League this season, they play more away than home fixtures.

"I said to the players this competition is exciting not just because it gets in the Champions League, but also it's a title".

Gabon global Aubameyang is more used to featuring in the Champions League than Europe's second-tier competition, but his early impact with a goal and an assist was decisive for the Gunners.

With domestic football about to shut down for the worldwide break, Arsenal are not due to be in action again until playing host to Newcastle on April 1.
