As Arsenal prepares to take on Bayern Munich on Wednesday night at the Allianz Arena desperate to prove that their 2-0 win at the Emirates was no fluke.
Gunner centre-back Per Mertesacker has warned his teammates that the Bundesliga champions will be going all out to humiliate Arsenal when they meet in Bavaria saying: “They will be angry.
“We were the first team who really challenged them and beat them. They will try to show they are better than us.
“We showed that we can beat them, that’s a good sign but it will be a different game at their place. They are outstanding in their league and it will be a tough game.
“Both teams have got a chance to go through to the knock-out stages. We improved our position with our last game against Bayern but we need to get something out of this game.
“We need to perform and defend even better.”
Manger Arsene Wenger also admitted that they face a tough challenge adding: “I would sign today to take a point.
“However, to sit off Bayern, with their offensive quality, would be difficult to maintain for 90 minutes.”
