Clear Greek Goal is perfect for Arsenal’s UCL hopes

When Arsenal travel to Athens in a couple of weeks to face the Greek champions Olympiacos in the final Champions League group game, the job of Arsene Wenger will be a pretty easy one, or at least when it comes to the tactics to send the players out with anyway.

There are no grey areas for the Gunners and nothing that happens in the other game between Bayern Munich and Zagreb will have any bearing on whether Arsenal qualify for the next phase or not. Arsenal simply have to attack and score goals. That is our clear goal for the game.

There are two ways of us getting through; winning the game by at least two goals or winning the game by one and scoring at least three. So it is all about getting goals and while we still have to be careful at the back, the players will be told to go forward from the start and that suits our game perfectly.

We saw against Dinamo Zagreb this week and have been seeing for most of the season that with the likes of Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in the mood Arsenal can cut through defences like a hot knife through butter. Wenger should also be able to call on Theo Walcott and the Ox by then and Ramsey is already back.

We need to attack and the Greeks will surely try to hold what they have. Is that the perfect situation for Arsenal?

    I think we will qualify…..I mean who doesn’t want to play in the champions league knock out rounds.

    Wenger must continue playing Campbell…it takes time to gel with team mates…he actually has pace and will work wonders on counters…

    I still feel our dealist front three could be alexis theo welbeck…..I had hopes for ox and welbs this season by they will still have a chance to prove it…

    for olimpiacos walcot ramsey alexis ozil certainly has to start. If we can start the way we did against United we’ll blow them away 4:1 yes that’s my prediction.

    If we can come unscattered in the City and S,hampton game and within 2-4 points of 1st place by Jan…..we taking the EPL…

    For now….lets murder Norwich 3:0 and build some momentum

    COYG!!……..

    We will win with a 1-3 scoreline. They are already afraid, and we know we are deadly. My only Concern though, Giroud’s lack of motivation. Think he needs Theo back to kick him onto scoring again….
    GOYG,…. Go get’em!!!!

    I know this sounds silly, but for me this games for me is going to be about our defence. No doubt we are going to ebe pressing hard for goals, but that is so often when we expose our jugular and get caught on the counter. It will needT the Flame and BFG to be at there very best. Fingers crossed because I know they will want to do there best for us.

    I think the Boss and the Gunners themselves have already known that the Olympiacos game is going to be a mountainous match to climb. Petr Cech has equated the game to a play-off match. And I think it’s even a knockout match already before the proper knockout stages comemnced. Arsenal away game against Norwich City will serve a dual purpose for the Gunners if they win the game. Moreso if they win it convincingly. If the Gunners win the Norwich game and convincingly too, the win could see the Gunners jointly top the table again or even see them top the table alone. A good win over Norwich will serve a moral lifter for their Ucl game away to Olympiacos. Our hopes for the Gunners are they will hv a very good game at Karaiskakis Stadium in Athens and nothing will work against them. And the Gunners will defend stoutly & covert their I think the Boss and the Gunners themselves have already known that the Olympiacos game is going to be a mountainous match to climb.

    Cech is right in a way this is just like a 2ndleg ko. Monaco for example… down 3-1 first leg, need to score 3goals to make sure we match the away goals (match ourdefeat at home) nw against olympiacos, need to score 3goals to make sure we even it all up but Goal diff overall will take us through!
