Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is ‘100 per cent confident’ that the club can go to Germany and repeat their performance there last season and win by at least two goals, the Daily
The Gunners lost the first leg of their Champions League tie with Bayern Munich 3 – 1 last season but went to the Allianz Arena and produced a superb 2 – 0 win, missing out on progressing because of away goals.
And trailing 2 – 0 on aggregate, Chamberlain is calling for the team to draw on their experience from last season to progress to the quarter final stages.
The midfielder said: “Yes, 100 per cent (we can do it). Last season we went there 3-1 down – everyone wrote us off, but we managed to get a good 2-0 win there.
“We will be feeling we can take from that, and from Saturday’s performance. In football a lot of things can happen. We are top side, they will know the job is not done and we know the job is not done.”
Arsenal are currently in a tough run of fixtures, and along with Bayern Munich face away trips to North London rivals Tottenham and then Chelsea, before also hosting Manchester City on March 29th.
Arsenal have prepared themselves in the best possible way, beating an in form Everton side 4 – 1 to reach the FA Cup semi-finals, giving themselves a chance to finally end the club’s long trophy drought – nine years.
And they will need to be at their best to challenge a Bayern Munich side in deadly form – the Germans having set a new Bundesliga record of 16 consecutive wins after thrashing Wolfsburg 6 – 1, and now sit 20 points clear of second place Borrusia Dortmund with 10 games left of the season.
