Arsenal have the quality to get past Monaco says Mesut Özil
Mesut Özil has stated that he believes Arsenal have the quality to defeat Monaco and advance to the next stage of the UEFA Champions League.
The World Cup winner did however state it would be a difficult task as Monaco are strong defensively.
“Obviously it will be very hard because Monaco has a team that plays very defensively and acts strongly in defence,” Özil told Adidas Football’s Game Day Plus.
“But when I look at our team, with our qualities, at the players we’ve got, then we can think positively and in football anything can happen”
“We’re going there to win the game and to get to the next stage and if we believe in ourselves, we’ll succeed at that.”
Arsenal lost the first leg at home by a 3-1 scoreline and the North London based side need to score at least three goals in France.
Özil is expected to be included in the starting line-up following an impressive string of performances since returning from injury.
