Unai Emery and Lucas Torreira faced the media on Friday to discuss our Europa League last-16 second leg against Rennes.

We trail 3-1 from the reverse fixture in France last week, so how will we approach the game? Read on to find out what they had to say:

on Lacazette’s suspension being lifted…
UE – Good afternoon, we are happy that we can take all players because it is better without injuries and without suspended players. This news is positive for us.

on his experiences of making a comeback and what we need to show tomorrow…
LT – Obviously we had the situation in the last round where we had to turn the tie around. I think in terms of the game last week it was a very different game until the red card to Sokratis. I think we were in control of the match and we’d obviously taken an early lead, but the red card did change things and Rennes were able to take advantage of things. With that being side, we do have confidence that we’re going to give a very big performance tomorrow and go through to the next round.

on Lacazette being available…
LT – We all know how important Alex Lacazette is to us as a group and obviously the more players we have available the better it is because we do have some quality players, particularly in midfield and up top. Hopefully we will be able to make that danger pay. Let’s just hope that Lacazette can help us to achieve the result tomorrow.

on the pressure the group are under…
UE – We are very demanding of ourselves. For us, it’s one positive issue because we want to play big matches, tough matches against the best teams – and in the Europa League we are finding some results like the last round against BATE Borisov with difficulty. This round is the same with a bad result in the first match and for us it’s a tough match tomorrow. But our demands to get our best performance is in each training and each match, very high. I want to play matches that are difficult, with difficult results or with difficult players. Tomorrow is one match. We need to be together and create a big atmosphere in the Emirates with our supporters to help us to do the best performance possible in 90 minutes. We need to play with high emotion with our supporters but taking decisions on the pitch cleverly with our mind. This is both important issues that we need to control over 90 minutes and maybe more. We want to control but we want to build on the game because this result is giving us one long match tomorrow.
