And while Arsenal needs a win today, no team has defeated Bayern for months. They have five wins in their last five matches. And Arsenal has two losses and three victories in their last five games.
Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger tells his team’s news site this week that he is confident his players can pull off a victory and overcome their deficit today. “History is important in your belief. We have done it before, so we know we can do it because we have done it. It is a possible task, that is the most important for us.” Wenger added “I believe my team has quality and ambition, and I believe do we produce a top level performance, then we can do it. Our way to do it is to produce a top level performance and we will focus on that. We must turn up with quality and with belief and that is what we will do.”
Wenger says that Bayern will come into today’s match with confidence. And Wenger admits that his team will be nervous. But he assures news that his squad has come back from far worse deficits before and won. “Bayern at the moment are the team of course who are full of confidence because they are doing well, but we have a great opportunity to do it. I am absolutely confident that mentally we will be ready to play at our best.” Wenger also tells his team’s news site that “The statistics are against us, but we have also won 5-1 at Inter Milan, we have won everywhere in Europe. If we are winning 1-0 for example, then it makes the (final) result absolutely possible, so that is what we try to do. We do not have to be nervous and impatient, just to focus on the performance of our game.”
The key to winning today might be defense modifications. Wenger remarks “We know we have to attack, but we know as well that we have to defend, so I have to find the right balance because Bayern are a good team going forwards. We want to have a good balance between defending and attacking.”
And despite the recent showings by Mesut Ozil, Wenger tells news that Ozil will be strong today. Wenger tells his team’s news site this week “I believe he was affected by his performance (in the first leg). He started quite well in the first game and after that he was affected by the fact that he missed the penalty.” Wenger added “It affected his performance because he felt he let the team down. I think since, he has recovered. He had a great performance on Saturday, is on the right path and I am confident he will have a good game(on Tuesday).” For live score results today click HERE.
