Arsenal have an awful record against Bayern Munich in the Champions League, especially in recent years, but Arsene Wenger honestly believes that the Gunners can win through this time around if we can get a decent result over in Germany.”Yes, we’ve had bad experiences against them,” Le Prof said. “But I feel that this is a good opportunity.
“We have won there before and we play the first game away from home, so it’s important we protect the second game because I feel that to have a chance to qualify in the second leg, that will be very important. We go there not high, but to defend well as a team.”
It was important that we managed to beat a dour Hull side at the weekend to give us a bit of confidence back after successive defeats in the League, and the clean sheet will also be a boost as we prepare to repel the assault of Bayern in Munich, but Wenger also admitted that he needs Mesut Ozil to also regain his confidence ahead of the massive game in the Allianz Arena. “It’s time for him to score again,” he said. “Maybe he will find confidence back as well, because he misses chances. He is missing the chances that don’t look unfeasible for him.”
“I felt he didn’t feel confident against Hull. It’s always a problem because you think he can deliver something special, but it’s true that technically he missed things [against Hull] that he is not used to.”
With Alexis Sanchez in his usual irresistible form, we will also need Ozil at the top of his game against his fellow countrymen. We will need everyone to defend like hell and Ozil and Alexis to take advantage of any breakaway chances we get.
It sounds like Wenger would be happy with a 0-0 in the first leg? Would you?
