Arsene Wenger added: "Bayern at the moment are the team of course who are full of confidence because they are doing well, but we have a great opportunity to do it. I am absolutely confident that mentally we will be ready to play at our best.
"The statistics are against us, but we have also won 5-1 at Inter Milan, we have won everywhere in Europe. If we are winning 1-0 for example, then it makes the (final) result absolutely possible, so that is what we try to do.
"We do not have to be nervous and impatient, just to focus on the performance of our game."
– Arsene Wenger, Arsenal manager
History is important in your belief. We have done it before, so we know we can do it because we have done it.
It is a possible task, that is the most important for us. I believe my team has quality and ambition, and I believe do we produce a top level performance, then we can do it.
Our way to do it is to produce a top level performance and we will focus on that.
We must turn up with quality and with belief and that is what we will do.
