Arsene Wenger says tonight's trip to Bayern Munich is not 'mission impossible' and believes Arsenal can turn the tie around.
Bayern outclassed Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium two weeks ago when they cruised to a 3-1 victory in the last 16 first-leg clash and with home advantage this evening there looks to be no way back for the Gunners.
However Wenger does not see it that way and believes there is enough quality and passion in his side to upset the form book and go through to the quarter-finals.
"It is not mission impossible," he revealed. "It can be done, but first of all you need 100 per cent commitment, attitude and things to go your way. But usually football goes your way when you have the right attitude.
"There is a kind of feeling of 'let's really play with freedom'. Let's start strong. We have to create doubt in their mind and you only do that if you have a real go.
"The chance you have is to make insecure the certainty Bayern have at the moment. That you can only do if you perform at your best.
"We can have a real go without being silly. We can't think that the game lasts 30 minutes and throw everything forward from the first minute on. We want to be positive but also intelligent."
