By contrast, Arsenal have collapsed repeatedly on the road this season and have lost BOTH their away games in the knockout stages so far, to Rennes and BATE Borisov.

"Courage, we had little in London in the first half, there was intelligence in the second half, we must put the heart tomorrow with a high dose of intensity". I have tried to drag it on to my left and pass it out but before I knew it he (Aubameyang) was bloody on me. The atmosphere will be very good. "It will be an important game and a good challenge for us".

"For example we had dinner, their coaches and with our coaches, one day in St Albans in September. We will be ready".
