on Arsenal's slender advantage...
"We were a little bit in a situation while we were one-nil up, between keeping a clean sheet and going forward. We didn't really find our flow in the second half. Maybe we were cautious, not to be caught on the break. I felt as well that their midfield played very well, we found it difficult to dictate our leadership in the middle of the park, they have done well - they closed us down, and from then on in the second half it became more difficult."

on the return leg...
"I'm confident, I believe in my team. Of course our defensive record speaks for us and helps us to believe. Yes, we want to go there and try to score goals, and play our game of course. I don't know what to expect, you are in the Semi-Final of the Champions League, you could see tonight. They are technically a very good side, tactically very intelligent, very mature. We want a great performance. But we have a big game on Saturday again before that, and of course we want to deal well with that game as well. I might rotate a bit because we need fresh legs, we've given a lot today."

on who they could face in the final...
"For us we want first to go through, who we play after that is not our main worry. Our main worry is to go through and there's still 90 minutes to go. I always say we need two - two good games if we want to go through, and we have one more in front of us."

40/1 - Arsenal v Tottenham - Adebayor to score first and Arsenal to win 3-1
