Frenchman issues strong rallying call ahead of second leg in Bavaria.
Arsenal travel to Germany to take on runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 clash on Wednesday night, knowing that they need a miracle if they are to progress to the last eight of Europe’s premier club competition.
The North London club lost the first leg at the Emirates stadium 3-1 three weeks ago and now know they must score at least two goals if they are to stand any chance of overcoming their Bavarian opponents.
Gunners manager Arsene Wenger is naturally putting a brave face on affairs, and still believes it can be done.
“It’s not impossible. But the only way to make it possible is of course to, to play, have a real go and to play at our best tomorrow night, and that’s what we will try, that’s what we will do,” Wenger said in his pre-match press conference – viewable in the video at the bottom of this article.
“I am confident that we will be completely focused and up for it and we will give our best shot, then football is football, you know. Everything is possible.”
