    Arsenal ready to write a different story
    • April 16, 2024 • 1 month ago
    in summary
    The Gunners face frequent Champions League conquerors Bayern Munich in Wednesdays quarter-final second leg.

    Mikel Arteta believes Champions League quarter-final success against Bayern Munich will take Arsenal to the next level as he told his players to “write a different story” at the Allianz Arena.

    The Gunners head into Wednesday’s second leg locked at 2-2 with Thomas Tuchel’s Bayern after a thrilling draw at the Emirates Stadium last week.

    Defeat to Aston Villa on Sunday has since dented Arsenal’s Premier League title bid as attention now turns to Europe once again.

    Arsenal had lost seven last-16 ties in succession before returning to the Champions League this season – three times to Bayern.

    Arteta, though, feels reaching a semi-final against either holders Manchester City or record 14-time winners Real Madrid would elevate Arsenal.

    Asked how transformative victory would be and whether it would take Arsenal to the next level, the Spaniard replied: “Absolutely.

    “It would be unbelievable. If we make it happen tomorrow and we’re in the semi-final, we’ll be in a really high emotional state with something that we haven’t achieved in 15 years and that’s the opportunity.

    “All the preparation has been to achieve that. We have earned it. We have earned it for 10 months and everything we did last season, to start our journey in the Champions League after so many years.

    “Tomorrow we have an unbelievable opportunity to make it happen.”

    Arteta has overseen a sea change in approach to big away games this campaign, ripping up the recent form books and guiding Arsenal to draws at title rivals Manchester City and Liverpool.

    They have lost 5-1 on their last two visits to the Allianz Arena – but Arteta wants another memorable away performance to redress more recent history.

    “We have to change it and the opportunity comes there,” he added.

    “There are lots of things we can do to write our story very differently tomorrow, we know that and it is going to be about putting in a very, very strong performance collectively and individually to earn the right to be in the semi-final.

    “Most of our players haven’t experienced a night like this, this is going to be the first one, they are super-motivated, they are prepared, they feel confident and it is something that tomorrow we are going to have to show against an opponent that has this experience – but we want to make it happen.”

    It should be noted that Jurrien Timber is the only injuried Arsenal player to miss their visit in Germany.
