Cesc Fabregas believes Arsenal will beat Porto at Emirates and reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Two unlucky goals conceded in Portugal and Sol Campbell’s header are setting up an exciting return match at the Emirates next month.
Fabregas said : “It’s true that we weren’t able to win and it’s going to be hard for us in the second leg, but I’m still confident that we’ll prevail in the end. The return match is going to be difficult for both teams. We’ll just have to see who’s strongest on the night. Truth is we allowed them to score two very easy goals.
‘You just can’t let that happen at this level. Now we’re 2-1 down and we’re going to have to fight our way back.”
