Crazy Ball – Dundalk coach, Filippo Giovagnoli said his team would try to make Arsenal uncomfortable on Friday (30/10) early morning hrs.
The Premier League top team in the middle of the week will face Dundalk in the second match of Group B of the Europa League competition which takes place at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal itself in the opening match managed to win 2-1 over Rapid Wien last week. Meanwhile, Dundalk had to give up at home against Molde.
Although on paper his team lost materially to players, the Irish club is ready to trouble London Cannon when playing at home.
Speaking to the media crew, Dundalk tactician Filippo Giovagnoli said his team would try to provide resistance for Arsenal. He also revealed that Dundalk did not have quality players like The Gunners.
However, using the fist analogy himself refuses to give up. Filippo Giovagnoli feels that his players have a chance in the match. He also urged his players to concentrate fully and play with enthusiasm until the final minute.
In addition, Arsenal will only have two center-backs who are fit, namely Gabriel Magalhaes and Shkodran Mustafi. But Giavagnoli doesn't want to think about the absent or fit London Cannon players. According to him, what is important is knowing how to play Mikel Arteta's foster children, especially when attacking.
Even though it will be a big challenge to play in North London, the Dundalk coach still promises to make it difficult for the host camp.
Keep in mind, Arsenal when facing Rapid Wien in the first match of the Europa League had to be left behind first. Worse, they had to concede due to Bernd Leno's blunder.
