Can Arsenal do it this time and turn the mess around? by KM
Hi guys. So off the back of a nice win against the swans the big question tonight is – will we do it again? Can we actually beat Bayern away once more and give ourselves a bigger chance to go through?
It’s a monumental task, don’t kid yourself. Bayern missed some chances at the Emirates and our defense will need to be at its very best to deny Bayern who will have Robben back in the side. Him and Douglas Costa will give our full backs a nightmare and Joel Campbell (if he starts) and Alexis will have to do a lot of running.
I think we’ll be looking at set pieces. Mertesacker, Koscielny and Giroud will be key as . We’ll need to weather the storm. Survive the first half and frustrate Bayern. We’ll have very little of the ball and so we will need to make the best of it. Wenger outsmarted Guardiola at the Emirates, but we’ve picked up some vital injuries and they have some players back and regardless of our win at home, they still have the better side.
It doesn’t mean we cannot win, but I’d happily take a draw too. If we concede first, we’ll be in serious trouble, because if we go forward looking for a goal, we’ll get destroyed on the counter. Anyway it is what it is. Even if we win it’s more than likely that we will need to go to Greece needing a win anyway.
All I’m hoping is a performance that will make me proud. Cheers!
