Bojan: Arsenal will come out looking to score

Barcelona's striker Bojan Krkic says he won't lose sleep because of
Arsenal, but he will be surprised if the visitors go down without a

The youngster is adamant Barca can scale through the threat posed by
Arsenal in the quarter final of the competition.
He believes it will be strange if Barcelona fails to live up to the lofty
expectations of its fans and supporters, albeit he admits it won't
be easy for both sides at the Camp Nou.

Bojan told a press conference that Tuesday's Champions League match
against Arsenal will be "a real final". Just like Guardiola, the
youngster told his team mates to concentrate on today's encounter and
temporarily exclude Madrid from their thoughts: "Saturday's game will
come. Tomorrow we have a real final and we only want to concentrate on
that. The game against Arsenal will be a nice one a game to enjoy, at
a great venue. We are prepared to deal with it, to be sure. It is the
most important game, we have a lot at stake."

The Gunners fought back to secure an important draw at the Emirates
last week, and Bojan who praised Walcott's performance after the first
leg match of the tie is aware of what the visitors can do - his plan
to curtail Arsenal's game plan on Tuesday is very simple; they attack
first: "We have to go and attack in the game. If we do this we will
gain in many areas. They will come out looking to score, because they
have to."

Bojan might start for the Catalan giants because of Ibrahimovic's
absence (injury).
The striker said he was eager to play but quickly added: "The boss is
the best man to decide who plays. Nobody knows how to approach this
game better than he does. Whoever he picks, I'm sure it will be the
best option."

If he plays, Bojan stated in unequivocal terms that "I will do all I
can to help the team," If he doesn't get a game "I am very grateful to
the boss, and very happy to be able to play here, help my team mates,
and enjoy myself when I am given chances," he enthused.
