Arsene Wenger says he’d be happy to take a point from Bayern Munich on Wednesday, but says that the best way for his team to relieve themselves from pressure is to attack well when they have the ball.
With Per Mertesacker already warning that the German champions will be ‘angry’, Arsenal can expect something of an onslaught from Pep Guardiola’s side, and the manager would be happy if his team can take a draw – then look to get the points required from the Olympiacos and Dinamo Zagreb games.
“I would sign today to take a point but to sit off Bayern,” said WEnger. “But with their offensive quality, that would be difficult to maintain for 90 minutes.
“We have to relieve the pressure whenever we can and try to score goals. That is the structure of our team, to attack.
“If we set out our players only to defend then I don’t think we’ll be so efficient. We have to play every time we can.”
Arsenal have won in Munich before, goals from Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny securing a 2-0 victory in 2013.
