EL R16, Second leg: Arsenal FC (1) vs Stade Rennais FC (3) Emirates Stadium, London Thursday, March 14, 2019 4:00 PM EST BR Live ‘My regrets are not for myself but for unhappy France! With twenty thousand men less than I had we ought to have won the battle of Waterloo. But it was Fate that made me lose it.’ Napoleon Bonaparte - The return leg of a Europa League tie with French muggles Stade Rennais takes place this week as the Gunners look to keep the momentum from Sunday's special victory. The 2-0 win over Manchester United may not have been beautiful but it was a gritty 3 points earned and taken that has left Arsenal not only just 1 point from 3rd in the Premiership table but also full of renewed belief. For Arsenal their fate is now back in their own hands. First job is undoing the inglorious mistake that was last week's fixture wherein a few moments of dumbassery, spiced with a little hubris, left the Gunners facing a 2 goal deficit. The good news is this isn't insurmountable, provided, of course, Arsenal sharpen their focus and look more like the team that played Tottenham and Man U rather than folded omelette that showed up across the channel. The bad news is the job is made trickier due to the suspensions of two key players in Lacazette and Sokratis. Yes, Gooners, we will likely have to face another Mustafi performance. Will the home ground advantage endow a possible shutout of a mid-table Ligue 1 side or will Arsenal need to contrive 3-4 goals to advance? Will Ramsey and/or Ozil make another start? Will Idris Elba provide guest color commentary?! C'mon you Gunners!
