Guardiola: 2-0 UCL Lead is 'Dangerous'

MOST COMMENTED

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola admitted that he has been watching the impressive 2-0 win that Arsenal produced in Munich in last season’s UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second leg, and remarked that this season’s team is capable of pulling off a similar result. Bayern heads into Tuesday’s clash with a 2-0 lead after the first-leg of this season’s Round of 16 series first-leg in London, and he insisted that his players must not show any complacency.

“People think ‘2-0 you don’t have a chance in Munich,’ but that’s the main problem for us,” the former Barcelona coach said. “They have (Per) Mertesacker, (Tomas) Rosicky, (Kieran) Gibbs, (Mikel) Arteta -- a lot of very good players. I do not want to see (Mesut) Ozil control the game. That will be a big problem for us. This is not an easy game. We have to attack, give our best, be aggressive without the ball.” He added: “Winning 2-0 in London was a very good result for us, but it is also dangerous.”

Meanwhile, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger noted that his team’s European track record shows that it can overcome the two-goal deficit it takes into tomorrow’s clash. "It is a possible task, that is the most important thing. My team has quality and ambition," said Wenger, whose team defeated Everton 4-1 in the FA Cup quarterfinals on Saturday. "History is important in our belief. We know we can do it, because we have already done it (before). The way to win is to produce a top-level performance and turn up with quality and belief."
