Gilberto: We Have Slim Advantage

Arsenal midfielder, Gilberto, says the Champions League semi final second leg will be very difficult but the result from the first leg leaves us with an advantage, albeit a very slim one.

Bert knows this away leg of this tie will be much harder, with Villarreal having their home support and they WILL attack from the start as they have no other option.

But we have a slim advantage.

'We know it will be harder than the first one as they will play at home in front of their own supporters,' Gilberto said

'We will see that their supporters will support them all the time, but the first result was very important for us.'

'The victory for us gives us an advantage. It is not a big advantage, but if we keep our shape in the same way and play and do something then we have the chance to go to the final.'

We also have the advantage of not conceding a goal at home, yet we've got plenty of time to grab one for ourselves
