Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has stated that his team can beat Spanish giants, Real Madrid, if the teams were drawn together in the Champions League last-16.
The Gunners came top of their group after beating Basel on matchday six, while rivals Paris Saint-Germain dropped two points against Ludogorets.
Arsenal is expected to face a second-placed team in the first knockout round, with Madrid and Bayern Munich likely to be squaring up with them.
He told a news conference, “You look at the teams we can get, some look more prestigious, more difficult, and you would like me to say ‘I don’t want this team or that team’ but that would put us already in an inferior position if it happens.
“You can take Real Madrid, one of the favourites to win the competition; even against them we will have a chance of qualifying.
“Another inconvenient fact for us, we have not qualified for the last six years for the quarter-finals. That will be a huge challenge for my group and they will relish that.”
