Arsenal fans on Twitter ecstatic after hearing Lacazette is available tonight

Arsenal fans have just about gotten over the embarrassment of being played off the park by Stade Rennais last week and now face the return leg later this evening. They’ll all be a lot more confident of getting a win tonight too, now that it has been confirmed that Alexandre Lacazette is available after Arsenal successfully appealed his ban.

Arsenal and European away days just don’t seem to mix. It was away against BATE Borisov that the Gunners’ saw Alexandre Lacazette dismissed for lashing out during their 1-0 loss, and because of that, he missed the 3-0 win against the Belarusian’s at The Emirates. The next game he was out for was the 3-1 loss in Brittany against Rennais, so to have him back and ready to play is a massive boost.

After the Gunners’ last European disappointment they bounced back with a 3-0 win. This time around, if they are to make it through to the last eight of the competition then they’ll have to win by a similar margin. The goals that Laca brings certainly make that an easier task, but they still have their work cut out for them, especially seeing as how strong the Ligue 1 side looked just seven days ago, the fans, though, are in no doubt that Lacazette can fire them to a Europa League quarter-finals.

The Gunners cannot wait for kick-off later with Lacazette in the side and will be desperate to overturn the 3-1 deficit they suffered in France.
