Arsene Wenger has urged his Arsenal players to make sure they take their chances against PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday evening.
The Gunners must overturn a 1-0 deficit at Emirates Stadium in order to progress to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.
Wenger thinks the Dutch side will play defensively to protect their advantage but is confident Arsenal will break them down
"We have got the feeling from the first game that we have enough quality to beat Eindhoven, so let us focus on doing that tomorrow night," he said.
"I expect them to defend and catch us on the break, like they did in the first game.
"We have to find the solutions by being creative around the box, by the speed of our passing and by being ruthless on the chances we will create."
Tomas Rosicky has been sidelined for the last two weeks with a groin injury and is set to miss the game against PSV, but he has set his sights on returning to action in next Wednesday's Premiership clash against Aston Villa.
"My injury is on the wane. I will take part in today's training, and just try a little jogging as I am not feeling any pain," Rosicky revealed.
"I knew from the beginning that it was not a serious injury. The body just probably needs to rest for a few days to make it better.
"I have to confirm that I will probably not be ready for Wednesday's tie against PSV, but the next fixture is a week later and in my opinion this is enough time for me to prepare for the Villa game.
"I will be very nervous this Wednesday. We are one goal behind from the first time, but I am optimistic."
