Gabriel - Let’s attack with intelligence

Gabriel

Gabriel says Arsenal can win at Allianz Arena on Wednesday, providing they “attack with intelligence”.

Arsène Wenger’s side became the first team to beat Bayern Munich since the German Super Cup when winning their Champions League Group F fixture 2-0 at Emirates Stadium recently.

Gabriel believes the performance and result in north London acts as proof that Arsenal can win in Munich, but the Arsenal defender says the Gunners must play with “a slightly different outlook” in Germany.

"We’re a big team, we’re Arsenal and we need to attack because we need the result"

“I think we feel more confident within the competition than after the first two games,” he said. “We had two defeats and we felt a bit down but the group is very strong, so we managed to overcome that and we managed to recover against a great team that will probably fight to win the competition as well.

“With this victory, we managed to get up and running and realise that anything is possible in football, thanks to the confidence and ability of all the players.

“I think at home we were able to impose ourselves a lot more. We attacked a bit more but I think when we play away, we also have to have a slightly different outlook.

“That doesn’t mean we’ll spend the whole game defending. We’re a big team, we’re Arsenal and we need to attack because we need the result.

“But we need to attack with intelligence and make sure we don’t suffer a defeat and complicate our situation for the rest of our competition.”
