Cape Town - Arsenal
defender Laurent Koscielny insists his team-mates are united in their
pursuit to clinch a positive result at Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
The Gunners have been knocked out at the last-16 stage of the
Champions League by Die Roten on three occasions, and will be hoping to
claim a quarter-final spot for the first time since the 2009/10
Koscielny admitted that Arsenal have gone through some difficult
times this season, but believes everyone at the club have pulled
together for the trip to Germany.
"We are united, the dressing-room plays well together," Koscielny told the press, according to ESPN. "You have good and bad moments during a season, but that is when you see how you respond.
"We had bad moments against Watford and Chelsea, but it was very important to come back with a win against Hull on Saturday.
"We know we are capable to win here, though, because we have done it
in the past. We know the first game here is very important because we
have the second game at home.
"But the first game is really important and we must have a good result tomorrow."
Meanwhile Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neur insinuated in a recent interview that the Gunners were easy to play against as they leave lots of space for their opponents to play.
Kick off is at 21:45.
