Mathieu Flamini says he’s hoping the experience in the Arsenal side can prove decisive against Olympiacos tomorrow.
The Gunners seek qualification to remain in this season’s Champions League, a competition the Frenchman says is crucial for the club to be in.
“Of course this is an important competition for me personally and for the club,” he said.
“We have a good test to prove we have the quality to go through and continue our adventure. Everyone is focused and I will try to help my partners.
“We are experienced for the big games and I believe we can progress.”
And if they do go through, Arsene Wenger is backing his team to make further progress when the competition restarts in the spring.
“We can be dangerous if we go through because we come from far,” said the manager.
“Overall if you look at the numbers since the start of the Champions League group stage, we have played with 10 men in Zagreb, we scored an own goal at home to Olympiacos, every single game we were a bit unlucky but if we get through we will be dangerous that is for sure.”
