Wenger: Munich Win Means Arsenal Can Win Anywhere

MOST COMMENTED

Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal’s victory away to Bayern Munich last season has given the Gunners the confidence to win anywhere away from home. Though Arsenal won the away leg of last season’s UEFA Champions League Round of 16 clash 2-0 on the night, its 3-1 defeat at home meant that Bayern progressed to the quarterfinals thanks to the away goals rule.

"What happened that night is that we were in a position where we were expected to be hammered and everyone predicted a six or seven-nil," Wenger told Arsenal Player. "We had nothing to lose, we decided to go for it and realized after the game we were very close to knocking them out. Overall, I believe even last season we had a decent away record and from that moment you think, 'If we can go to Munich and win, why not anywhere else?'"

Arsenal opens this season’s Champions League with a tough away trip to Marseille on Wednesday. The other match in Group F sees Napoli face Borussia Dortmund at home.
