Bayern Munich v Arsenal: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain '100%' confident Arsenal can overturn two-goal deficit at Bayern

England star suggests the Gunners can draw on their experience last season to triumph in Munich and progress to the last-eight

England midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is adamant that Arsenal can overturn their two-goal deficit and progress to the next round of the Champions League as they prepare for Tuesday’s last-16 second leg against Bayern Munich.

Arsenal will be hoping for a similar performance to that of last season, when they travelled to the Allianz Arena and came away with a 2-0 victory – although it saw them vacate the tournament on the away goal rule – and Oxlade-Chamberlain believes that the squad can use that experience to emerge victorious tomorrow night.

Speaking to www.arsenal.com, the England international said: “Last season we went there 3-1 down and everyone wrote us off but we managed to get a good 2-0 win there. We'll be feeling we can take something from that and in football a lot of things can happen.

“There is a 100 per cent chance we can do it. We are a top side, they will know the job's not done and we know the job's not done.”

 

While Bayern are full of confidence from their 6-1 drubbing of Wolfsburg at the weekend, the Gunner s are also on a high as they defeated Everton 4-1 on Saturday to book their third trip to the ‘new’ Wembley, although they are yet to taste success their and will hope for an upturn in luck when they face defending champions Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Oxlade-Chamberlain admits he is excited by the prospect of walking out at the home of English football with his club team-mates, but does accept that they can’t get carried away following Manchester City’s elimination.

“You watch FA Cup games at Wembley when you are growing up and that's where you want to be,” Oxlade-Chamberlain added. “It's the first time we've been there since I've been at Arsenal so it's definitely a big thing for us.

“But we can't get carried away, we want to be excited but approach it very professionally and be as calm and cool as we can.

“Hopefully we can get through and get to the final.”
