Arsene Wenger: What it would mean to make the Last 16 of the Champions League


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says his team will be dangerous for whoever will draw them in the Last 16 of the Champions League if they beat Olympiakos on Wednesday night.

The Gunners have to beat the Greeks by a two-goal margin to have any hope of making it through the group stage of the competition.

And the Frenchman has urged his players to focus on the job.

"We can be dangerous if we go through because we come from far," Wenger said.

"Overall if you look at the numbers since the start of the Champions League group stage, we have played with 10 men in Zagreb, we scored an own goal at home to Olympiakos, every single game we were a bit unlucky but if we get through we will be dangerous that is for sure.

"At the moment we have two or three super-favourites [for the competition] and whoever gets through will have to chase them.

"As long as you don't win the competition – at any stage to go out is bad. That is basically it. On the other hand, we have gone 15 times out of the group consecutively so you could say that is a good habit.

"We have to put every scenario in our head, it is important we focus on the performance.

"The results come if we play well so let's focus on that. When the goal comes I don't know, but if we play well we have a chance to score.

"Mentally, you prepare yourself to adapt to every situation and give the right response to every situation you face.

"We will have to adapt to what is happening on the pitch and to all of the scenarios, accept them and respond.

"Ideally, you would like to not have to be patient but we might need to be. What is important is that basically the same for every game in Champions League you attack well and defend well, that is the best way, go into the game with a desire to win it and knowing you need to do both sides of the game well.

"Of course, we have a history where we have positive results. We know we can do it so the best way to do it is with a top-quality performance and that is what we want to focus on."
