Petr Cech says winning the Europa League with Arsenal would be the ideal end to his career.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery hailed his side's ability to cope under pressure after they came back from a 3-1 loss in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 tie with Rennes to win 3-0 on Thursday and advance 4-3 on aggregate.

Arsenal will discover their quarter-final opponent at tomorrow's draw in Nyon, with Chelsea, Napoli and Eintracht Frankfurt the teams Emery will be hoping to avoid.

Arsenal are through to the next round of the Europa League after mounting a mighty comeback against Rennes.

"My dream goes on - my dream is to retire with a trophy in my hands", Cech told Arsenal's website.

"There were quite a few things that went against us over the past couple of days".

The Gunners are into the quarterfinals after the 3-0 result saw them win the tie 4-3 on aggregate.

However, they duly delivered as a brace from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and a goal from Ainsley Maitland-Niles booked them their place in the final eight of the competition. "The next match is the most important for us", Emery said.

Let us know in the comments. As soon as the game started, you could see the way the team played and fought together.

The game kicks off 9 pm West African time.

"It's also because it's one title and I think we can feel the possibility to win one title, doing this way with a hard moment like today and playing also against big teams".
