Arteta Wants To Invoke The Spirit Of '89

Arteta Wants To Invoke The Spirit Of '89

In 1989 Arsenal went into a game that needed to see the Gunners win by two clear goals, at a place where teams just didn`t win by two clear goals, to secure the most dramatic league title in football history.

Arsene Wenger`s Arsenal need to at least emulate that result tonight to have even the slightest possible chance of qualifying for the quarter finals of the Champions League.

Yes I realise I could have just referred to this exact fixture from last season as a frame of reference, but it wouldn`t have been half as dramatic!

However considering both those results it`s a timely reminder that things don`t always go the way people expect and with the right application anything can happen in a football match.

Arsenal vice-captain, Mikel Arteta wants the Gunners to invoke the spirit of `89 (yes yes, and of 2013) to try and upset the reigning European Champions in Germany tonight.

"Last year`s [win over Bayern] does create more belief that the result is possible," Arteta said on Arsenal.com.

"It is vital that we score a goal. Obviously [if we do] the game changes and the psychological game starts and that is where we could have an advantage."

"It is a tough place to come but we believe and we have been fighting the whole season to be in the Champions League and we don`t want to throw it away."

"We will do our maximum to make it as difficult as we can and of course you can win any game 2-0 and this is no different."
