Th Gunners are going off to Germany to get ready for the most important game so far this season, and although we are in confident mood, the Germans are also determined to beat Arsenal this time around.
Their super-striker Robert Lewandowski has gone an unbelievable two whole gams without scoring a goal and he is desperate to end his goal dought on Wednesday. Lewandowski said: “We have to get the points. We’re playing at home and will give our all. The most important thing is that we control the game and score the first goal.
“I’ve gone two games without a goal now, obviously I want to score again. I will give everything for that.”
But we also have our own Germans in the Arsenal side in Ozil and Mertesacker, and Per knows that Bayern are desperate to get revenge at the Allianz Arena, but he is ready to stop Lewandowski scoring yet again..
“They will be angry,” Mertesacker said. “We are the first team that really challenged them and beat them in the end. So they will try to show they are better than us. We showed that we can beat them. That’s a good sign but it will be a different game at their place.
“Both teams have got a good chance to go through to the knockout stages. We improved our position in the last game against Munich but we need to get something out of this game. That puts pressure on us to perform and we need to defend even better.”
Our defence is on fire as well as our attack force, so I can see no reason why we should lose this time after our clean sheet at the Emirates. Can you?
