Paulista who missed the Bayern Munich game due to some illness watched his teammates defeat the German visitors and cannot wait to face Bayern on Wednesday.
Gabriel Paulista surmises that the Champions League victory over them at the Emirates has made the team “realise that anything is possible in football,” and feels the team can progress out of the group despite the poor start to the campaign.
“I think we feel more confident within the competition than after the first two games,” he said. “We had two defeats and we felt a bit down but the group is very strong, so we managed to overcome that and we managed to recover against a great team that will probably fight to win the competition as well.
“With this victory, we managed to get up and running and realise that anything is possible in football, thanks to the confidence and ability of all the players.
The 24-year-old has advised the team to play with caution this time by tidying up the defence before attacking at the Allianz arena.
“I think at home we were able to impose ourselves a lot more. We attacked a bit more but I think when we play away, we also have to have a slightly different outlook.
“That doesn’t mean we’ll spend the whole game defending. We’re a big team, we’re Arsenal and we need to attack because we need the result.
“But we need to attack with intelligence and make sure we don’t suffer a defeat and complicate our situation for the rest of our competition.”
Arsenal are quite familiar with that ground, Mesut Ozil knows how to deal with them, Alexis Sanchez is not happy – he did not score against Swansea city, Giroud is in form, Arsenal can win the game.
