Arsenal scored a late equaliser to make it all square in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final. It was one of the keenly-awaited fixtures of this round and a lot of expectation was on that match. Going into the contest both sides were experiencing an indifferent form. The Gunners are at the top of their game and have been excellent so far in 2024 in the league and Europe. Their sound defence has been the key to Arsenal’s success.

However, the same cannot be said for Bayern Munich. The German giants have been experiencing a below-par campaign and look set to miss out on the Bundesliga title to Bayer Leverkusen, who have a healthy lead at the top. They have also been inconsistent in this competition. Hence, Arsenal were labelled by many as favourites in the first leg. However, Bayern did very well to hold out the North London side for a 2-2 draw.

Leandro Trossard on his equaliser

Leandro Trossard, who came from the bench to score the late equaliser for Arsenal, went into depth to talk about that goal and Gabriel Jesus’ involvement in it. “He dribbled his way through and the moment he was in the box, I shouted his name because I knew I was free. Luckily he saw me, and it’s the perfect goal for us – it was a great feeling. I think every footballer wants to play at the highest level, and the Champions League is that, especially in front of your home fans, it’s always nice. I’m happy with that,” Trossard, quoted on Arsenal.com, said after the Champions League game.

He then revealed the squad’s emotions in the dressing room after the match. “It’s a mixed feeling [in the dressing room] I would say. I think we started so well in the first 15 minutes; we could have been up by two or three goals. And then you can see their quality as well, especially up front, their individual qualities, they’re so strong, especially on the counter-attack, and that’s where they hurt us today. At the end I think we’re happy obviously with the equaliser, it brings us back on equal terms and then we have to do it there,” the attacker added.

Now the attention shifts to the second leg. With no away goals rule, there is still everything to play for in the tie. In Germany, Bayern would normally be the favourites on the paper. However, the form is on Arsenal’s side. Trossard though expects a difficult away fixture, as he revealed where his side could improve. “I think it will be a tough game there as well, they’ve shown today how they can hurt us so I think we need to work on that for next week and to be honest, I think if we’re at our top level, we can beat them,” he explained.

The attacker added: “I think maybe on the ball today, that wasn’t the case so we know what we’re going to work on, but hopefully we can finish it there. The confidence is really high, even without the game today. We’ve been playing so well in the last few weeks and months, and it’s just nice that we had the equaliser as well, I think it was so important to go to Munich and have that result, so it’s all to play for.”
