Manager Arsene Wenger has been looking ahead to Wednesday’s clash against Bayern Munich in the final 16 of the Champions League and he feels that home advantage will help us reverse our recent trend against the German side.

With it being the fourth year out of five that we have met the Bundesliga side, Wenger explained to the Official Site that he felt home advantage in the second leg would prove to be key for us.

‘Yes, we’ve had bad experiences against them. But I feel that this is a good opportunity. We have won there before and we play the first game away from home, so it`s important we protect the second game because I feel that to have a chance to qualify in the second leg, that will be very important. We go there not high, but to defend well as a team.’

Wenger also went on to say that he feels Mesut Ozil could have a huge role to play in the game as we go in search of a quarter final berth for the first time since 2010.

‘It`s time for him to score again. Maybe he will find confidence back as well, because he misses chances. He is missing the chances that don`t look unfeasible for him. I felt he didn’t feel confident against Hull. It`s always a problem because you think he can deliver something special, but it`s true that technically he missed things that he is not used to.’
