Gunners boss still believes his side can snatch a result.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger still believes his side have a chance of going through to the next round of the Champions League according to BBC Sport.
The Frenchman’s side travel to Bayern Munich tonight looking to overturn a 3-1 deficit following the first leg at the Emirates Stadium.
But Wenger has not ruled out the possibility of his side progressing to the quarter-finals of the competition.
‘It is difficult, we know that, but not impossible’, said Wenger.
‘The only way to make it possible is to have a real go – that’s what we’ll do. Turning up expecting to go out would be absolutely unacceptable for us.
‘We have big experience in the Champions League and in Europe we have basically won everywhere and that means we have the right to believe.
‘I am convinced that if this team can find a big game you will see a completely different animal.
‘This season we have fought to find that in the big games and we have another opportunity [on Wednesday]. I hope the team takes this chance.
‘I have a great respect for this team and its attitude and they have not been rewarded yet.
‘It is important for the end to our season that we do it.’
Wenger is set to rest a number of key players for tonight’s game as the Frenchman seeks to prioritise qualification for next season’s Champions League. The likes of Santi Cazorla and Theo Walcott are all set to be absent from tonight’s starting eleven as Wenger plans ahead for the weekend’s game against Swansea.
