Arsene Wenger has challenged his side to invoke the spirit which saw them beat Bayern Munich when they take on Borussia Dortmund.
The Gunners head to Germany on the back of a 2-0 win over Liverpool which kept them at the top of the Barclays Premier League and produced the required response following a disappointing home exit from the Capital One Cup against Chelsea.
While Arsenal may be five points clear at the top of the English table, Wenger's side are certainly not having it all their own way in Europe.
However, Arsenal were within two minutes of winning there in September 2011 and Wenger sees no reason why they should not adopt a confident approach again as they did on the last visit to Germany in March, when victory over the eventual European champions kick-started a superb end to the campaign.
"We take belief from Bayern. We play everywhere to win and that will not change of course, we will have a positive attitude in our approach to the game," Wenger said.
"We have played everywhere in Europe and always had the same approach and will be again like that tomorrow.
"It is difficult to predict what will happen, that is what makes football great. Dortmund are positive, we are very positive. At least that will guarantee both teams will try to win the game."
