Bayern had more possession than us, but we decided to make it tight in our final third and catch them on the break.“Overall we have beaten a very strong team and kept a good level focus from the first to the last minute and kept a clean sheet as well.”Wenger added: ”We (still) need a result at Bayern. Now let’s focus on Everton (in the Premier League on Saturday).” Arsène Wenger last_img read more
