–Wenger says winning home games will prove vital
Arsène Wenger believes his side’s Champions League destiny will be decided at Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal host Galatasaray tonight after losing in Dortmund during the opening round of group fixtures.
The Gunners have advanced from the group stage for 14 consecutive seasons and Wenger says the key to extending that run is performing well at home on a consistent basis.
“The group stage is a minimum of 10 points so the home games are vital,” the boss said.
“We had a disappointing result in Dortmund and at the moment I feel that the potential is there for us.
“We don’t lose a lot but we want to find the winning edge together and we have that opportunity tonight.
“It’s early but we are maybe more under pressure to win the game than if we had won the first.
“But it is the same in the Champions League – you want to win your home games. You need one good result away from home and then win all your home games.”
