Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is confident that his side can defeat Bayern Munich in their Champions League clash despite the 2-0 deficit and has hailed the desire in the team.

The club are on course for their first trophy since 2005 after securing an FA Cup semi-final clash with Wigan following their 4-1 win against Everton.

They now travel to Germany to try to progress in the Champions League but face an uphill battle after a 2-0 defeat at home in the first leg.

Despite having the odds stacked against them, Wenger insists that the tie isn't over and the club can book their place in the quarter-final.

A repeat of their shock 2-0 victory at the Allianz Arena will be enough to at least send the tie into extra time on Tuesday night and Wenger believes the players can do it.

"I'm very proud of the players," he told Arsenal's official website.

"For the spirit, the attitude, the desire and the relentless drive going forward, that of course is pleasing.

"Our focus was spot on until the last minute and we had an inspirational win [and] a convincing one against a good team so that is even better.

"We needed to respond from a very disappointing result at Stoke and from a very disappointing performance. We were at the expected level and that is what will be needed again on Tuesday night."

Following on from the weekend victory against Everton, Wenger is confident his side will travel to Munich with their heads held high and believes that can spring a surprise.

"What I rate is that we have a huge desire to turn this result around. We have nothing to lose but let's be inspired by the type of performance we have shown, show the same attitude and put them under pressure then I think we have a chance," he added.
