We all saw how awful Arsenal were in the game at Rennes when Aunameyang had an off day and our only goal was a lucky cross from Iwobi. Surely we would have done better if Lacazette had’ve been on the pitch although he wouldn’t have helped us conceding three goals!
But the good news is that our French striker can now play in the return leg on Thursday after his appeal was heard by UEFA. The BBC reported….
Alexandre Lacazette is eligible to play in the second leg of Arsenal’s Europa League last-16 tie with Rennes on Thursday after his ban was reduced.
The striker was banned for three European matches by Uefa after being sent off in the first leg of Arsenal’s match against Bate Borisov in February.
It was later reduced to two matches – which the 27-year-old has already served – after Arsenal appealed.
Rennes have a 3-1 lead following the first leg against Arsenal on 7 March.
So that is a great bit of news, and surely we should be able to score goals if we have an attacking side like we did against Man United. I am sure that Emery will be going hell for leather to win this one, but should we still worry about our defence without Sokratis?
