Arsenal will be hoping to overturn a 3-1 deficit in the second tie against Rennes. The Gunners were well below their best in the first leg in France, as they surrendered an early lead and slipped to a shock loss. Despite that result, there will be some confidence over Unai Emery’s men, as they beat Manchester United 2-0 in the Premier League. In addition, their home court advantage makes them strong favorites to win. However, Friday’s football game looks to be a much tougher proposition and Emery played down the notion that his side remains favorites to progress.
“I don’t think about that. I only want to play the best possible match, doing all we can, with each player and the team. In the first 90 minutes, they beat us and tomorrow, we will want to show here it can be different, but with a big respect to them and also knowing we need all the players with the focus and to control our emotions and control the different situations and scenarios that can come in the 90 minutes. We are very demanding on ourselves. We need to be together and create a big atmosphere with our supporters to help us. We need to play with high emotion, but take clear decisions and try to control the 90 minutes.” Arsenal coach stated
