Ozil Tasks Gunners on Miraculous Outing

Arsenal-German playmaker, Mesut Ozil, has called on his team-mates to believe they have what it takes to miraculously overrun Monaco at Monte Carlo tonight.

The Gunners’ hopes of progress to the quarter-finals of Europe’s elite club competition are all but over following a disappointing 3-1 defeat in the first leg at the Emirates Stadium last month.

No team has recovered from more than a single-goal deficit going into an away leg in the Champions League era.

Monaco beat nine-man Bastia 3-0 in Ligue 1 on Friday night to extend their formidable defensive record with only seven goals conceded from the last 22 games.

“When you believe in yourselves, a positive energy grows that you can achieve your aims.

“In football, things that may look unlikely can happen. I know that if we believe in ourselves and utilise our potential, we can still go through,” Ozil said.
