Trossard makes it clear that Arsenal are “happy obviously with the equaliser” against Munich

Leandro Trossard, Arsenal’s hero in their clash with Bayern, provided an insight into what the Arsenal dressing room was like after the 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich.

He said, “It’s a mixed feeling, I would say. I think we started so well in the first 15 minutes; we could have been up by two or three goals. And then you can see their quality as well, especially up front, their individual qualities; they’re so strong, especially on the counterattack, and that’s where they hurt us today.”

“At the end I think we’re happy obviously with the equaliser, it brings us back on equal terms and then we have to do it there.”

For those who did not watch the match, the Belgian international accurately describes how it was.

It appears that he believes they were fortunate not to lose and is proud to have fought for the draw. He thinks they’re prepared to fight at the Allianz Arena, where Bayern has only lost twice all season versus Werder Bremen and Borussia Dortmund.

We can tell from these claims by the former Brighton player that this Arsenal team is determined, and they may know what they need to do to deal with Bayern.

With the game tied at 2-2 and the winner in the second leg taking all, Arsenal can use the positives from the first leg to correct their deficiencies, such as the defensive flaws they demonstrated, and aim to be at their best next week.

That said, Mikel Arteta has the big challenge of leading his side to an important win over Villa this weekend before he and his team fly to Germany and dispatch Bayern to move closer to a match at Wembley for the European title.

So here are some simple rules which I must insist commenters follow….

You agree not to give any personal abuse to other Arsenal fans. Everyone is allowed to hold their own opinions even if you disagree with them. It COSTS NOTHING TO BE POLITE TO OTHER ARSENAL FANS.

  1. I personally feel like beating Bayern on their turf is very doable considering the fact that they’ve been beaten there this season, and yes if our performances in the PL, especially in 2024 is anything to go by, we tend to have our best performances away from the Emirates. Arteta just have to find the right balance between defence and attack, and not show them too much respect like we did to City at the Etihad recently. Havertz start in a midfield 3 for me alongside Rice and Odegaard, front 3 of Saka Jesus and Martinelli does the trick. Yes, Martinelli dropped a stinker in the first leg, buh we’re going to be more on the back foot at the Allianz, hence his pace is going to be useful on the counter. Zinny at left back.

  2. The gunners may not afraid of any team this time. I am looking forward to win it and go to next round.

  3. Yes! Us have every reason to thank God! For not losing the match.
    The 2-2 draw game that the Gunners had forced Bayern Munchen to. But tha home draw by the Gunners doesn stop them from knocking out BM at their Allianz Arena home Stadium next Wednesday nifgt.
    But if the Gunners will achieve knocking out Bayern Muhen to reach the semifinals, I think if they play their last Man City game at the Etihad against Bayern Munchen. And improved on their overall quality of play in that their Man City last game in their match away to Bayern Munchen. Surely and certainly, Arsenal will knockout Bayern Munchen from the Ucl this season. And advance to the next stage.
