Olivier Giroud wants Arsenal to score quickly against Bayern Munich on Wednesday. Which pretty much makes him the same as the rest of us. Only we’re not the ones paid to do it.
Arsenal trail 3-1 on aggregate, and with Bayern holding three away goals the Gunners need to score at least three at the Allianz Arena to progress.
That’s assuming we don’t let any in, and the Handsome French Bloke is aware we need to improve back there, and remains vaguely optimistic.
“In football you never know,” he told Kicker magazine. “We need to believe and stay focused. But we need to correct our bad defensive behaviour as well.We need to score an early goal.”
And he believes that the Munich approach to football could mean it’s a game of many chances.
“I like to play against German teams because they are attacking all the time. There I get myself more possibilities to score,” he continued, having not scored against the attacking all the time German team in the last game.
Let’s hope we do get that early goal. And that it’s a penalty and Manuel Neuer is sent off and so is Arjen Robben for excessive baldness, along with Toni Kroos for laughing at Robben.
At that point we might just have a chance.
