Arsenal winger Willian believes they can go all the way in this season’s Europa League.
Up against Slavia Prague in their quarterfinal first leg at the Emirates Stadium tonight at 9pm, the Gunners are 10th on the Premier League log and basically have no chance of making the top four.
Their only chance of playing Champions League football next term is to win the Europa League, with Willian saying: “We are still far from the final but the idea is to go step by step, game by game and we have a difficult match against Slavia.
“They are a compact team which also has quality so we have to have confidence. We believe we can reach the final, yes.”
The visitors will be without centreback Ondrej Kudela, who is suspended for the clash following allegations of racism made against him after their previous Europa League match against Rangers.
