Statements - Gabriel Jesus, Arsenal player

Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus commented on his perception of how the season is going for Arsenal: "This is the best part of the season for everyone who is still in the Champions League and fighting in the Premier League. It's exciting because now it's the decisive games, now the small details count. Now everyone is back to full fitness and I hope everyone can give an extra and help the team."

He also talked about what he thinks of the opponent (Bayern) in this series: "Everyone knows the history of Bayern. They have won many titles, including several Champions League and Bundesliga titles. Everyone knows the level of the club, the incredible quality of their players, and it doesn't matter if they have struggled in their last game, or in the last two or three games: they are still Bayern and can hurt us. That's what we have to keep in our minds."

Statements - Eric Dier, Bayern player

Bayern defender Eric Dier spoke about the feelings he had when he learned that Arsenal would be the opponents in the quarterfinals: "The initial reaction was a bit of humor, having left England and now going back there, it's fun, and playing again against my biggest rival from when I was in England. It's a curious coincidence that soccer has a habit of creating these stories."

However, he made it clear that this duel will not be about a personal duel: "It's about Bayern playing Arsenal, and that's the most important thing. It's about us as a club playing in the quarterfinals of the Champions League, trying to win and get through to the next round."
