When Bayern Munich came to the Emirates a few weeks ago, they looked like Invincibles, having won every single game in every single competition up until that point, but we still beat the German Champions and now have to go to Munich to repeat the feat on Wednesday.
Bayern’s cloak of invincibilty has now slipped after losing at the Emirates, and they failed to score again at the weekend with the 0-0 draw at mid-table side Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga. It would seem that our sparkling football has got Pep Guardiola’s side rattled and they will have our superiority over them fresh in their minds.
And we are definitely not going there to play for a point just because it is an away game, not according to Gabriel anyway. “When we play away, we also have to have a slightly different outlook, but that doesn’t mean we will spend the whole game defending.” he told Goal.
“We are a big team, we are Arsenal and we need to attack because we need the result, but we need to attack with intelligence and make sure we don’t suffer a defeat and complicate our situation for the rest of our competition.”
“Everything is possible in football,” he added.
“We know the difficulties we are going to find. Bayern are an excellent team playing at home with the fans on their side, so it will be a big challenge.
“If we are as determined as we have been over the last few years, I believe that we can go there and get a great result.”
They are an excellent team, but so are we. After our last months exploits we are in better form than our rivals as well, so i can see no reason why we can’t take all three points and set up a thrilling finish to the Group Games!
