Hector Bellerin remains supremely confident of reaching the last 16 of the Champions League

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin remains supremely confident of reaching the last 16 of the Champions League.

They need to overcome Olympiakos by more than two goals in order to have any chance of qualification. The task is made tougher since it will be away from home. If it was at the Emirates stadium, Arsenal would have been seen as favourites to get the two goals and complete the job. As it is in Turkey where the home supporters are fanatical, it does get a lot tougher for the gunners.Bellerin is expected to continue in the right back for the gunners.

The 20-year-old has already evolved into one of Arsenal’s important players in the back. The Spanish star has been an ever present in the Premier League by making 13 appearances already.Bellerin continues to remain as one of the few squad members to have not witnessed a game while coming on for the bench. Olympiakos have a three-point advantage and will be able to comfortably go to the next round even with a draw.However, this is likely to provide a few nerves within the team. Arsenal know clearly what they want and the way to get it according toBellerin.

“We’ve proved already that we’re a team who are very dangerous when we have the ball. We need to try to do that at Olympiacos by having possession and creating chances.I’m sure that the ball is going to go in and that we’re going to go home with a win.That’s very important, that the team is in the mood for it and that the team wants to get out of the group stages.We know that, as the players who represent Arsenal, we need to be up for the job,” said the 20-year-old, who has already made more than 15 appearances in all competitions.
