Olivier Giroud wants his Chelsea teammates to believe in a near-impossible comeback against Bayern Munich.
The Blues got battered at home on Tuesday night. Bayern went away with a 3-0 Stamford Bridge scoreline in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16.
“It’s going to be almost impossible but we need to go there with belief and to believe that we are going to score. You never know, you know,” Giroud said. “They scored three goals here and if we score three and don’t concede, you know. I’m not joking. We have nothing to lose and we’re going to play our game with more.”
Former Arsenal winger, Serge Gnabry scored a brace while Robert Lewandowski sealed up the win. “I played with him at Arsenal. At 16, he was not mature enough but obviously at 16 nobody is,” Giroud continued.
“But the way he improved is amazing and he is doing so well since the last two or three years now. I’m happy for him because he deserves it and he’s a good guy who has worked a lot. He’s been very good tonight also, so it’s good for him and we need to bounce back on Saturday. It’s very disappointing today, but I understand sometimes you try but they were too good for us.”
