Emmanuel Eboue says it would be 'sporting suicide' for Arsenal to sit back on their two-goal lead when they visit Juventus on Wednesday.
The Gunners sent shockwaves around Europe with a stunning performance at Highbury as they overwhelmed the Italian giants thanks to goals from Cesc Fabregas and Thierry Henry.
Arsene Wenger's side are sure to sustain severe pressure in Stadio Delle Alpi when Juve attempt to mount a comeback, but Eboue insists they will look to play their natural attacking game.
Indeed, one away goal for the London side would leave Juventus requiring four to reach the UEFA Champions League semi-finals, and the Ivorian right-back, who has excelled in 2006, says The Gunners feel no fear about taking the game to Fabio Capello's side.
"We won't just go to defend in Turin," said Eboue.
"It would be sporting suicide because Arsenal never do that kind of thing, and I certainly do not have any fear going into the game.
"Juventus will be very difficult in their own stadium because they will have to attack from the first whistle trying to get goals.
"But I am convinced we can score a goal and that will be enough because we won't concede four."
