Ozil - How we can beat Bayern again

Mesut Ozil is sure that Arsenal can beat Bayern Munich again - providing they replicate their performance from Emirates Stadium a fortnight ago.

The Germany international and Olivier Giroud scored to secure Arsène Wenger’s side a crucial Champions League Group F victory over the Bundesliga giants on matchday three.


That defeat was Bayern’s first in 13 matches, and one that Ozil believes was inflicted due to Arsenal’s confidence and hard work.


“Firstly, we need to believe in ourselves and secondly we need to be as disciplined as in the first game,” he told Arsenal Player. “We know that they will have a lot of possession and that they will be going for the win.

“Our goal has to be to counter against them and make sure that we take our chances. Then we’ll have a good chance against them.

“We knew that they would have possession and our aim was to counter against them.

“We did that really well a few times in the first half, and Manuel Neuer made some excellent saves.

“In the second half we waited for our chance and we took them when they came. I think we were deserved winners, because we played in a very disciplined manner and didn’t allow Bayern to have many big chances.

“We’ve always got belief because we know exactly what we can do and we’ve got very good players in our ranks, who can be dangerous against every team.

“We know that and in Munich we want to show again that we belong to the best. We just have to play our game, be disciplined, believe in ourselves and then we’ll see if that’s enough against Bayern.”
