Braga striker Matheus says he finds Arsenal's attacking style "incredible" but intends to shock the London side in the Champions League.

The Brazilian will be one of Braga's key men as they take on Arsenal at the Emirates tomorrow night after the Portuguese side upset Sevilla in the qualification stage of the competition.

And the 27-year-old now believes his side has the ability to shock a few more European giants.

"We have already achieved our first success of the season by reaching the group stages of the Champions League," he told the Daily Star.

“But that is not enough. Braga are not just going into this as tourists. Now, we want to travel across Europe and win."

Matheus admits that he greatly admires Arsenal's forward play and will take great pleasure in watching Arsene Wenger's men in action.

However, the former FC Marco hotshot has warned the Gunners that he is there to do his job - and that's scoring goals.

“Arsenal are the favourites to win the match and the group – but we can spring a big surprise. Nobody thought we could beat Sevilla either," he added.

"The key to the match for us will be to give our all and take advantage of the opportunities we get on the counter-attack.

"I love Arsenal's incredible attacking style, but I don't intend to suffer from it.

"I intend to enjoy it. Scoring at Emirates Stadium would be an incredible moment for me to remember."
