Greek powerhouse Olympiacos lock horns with London side Arsenal on Tuesday evening, and head coach Zico believes his side can compete with the Premier League powerhouse.
"I have joined a club where the supporters are used not only to winning, but winning well," the Brazilian told a press conference. "With the quality of players I have here, I'm sure we can do that. We know of the difficulties we face playing against Arsenal – especially in their stadium. But we'll do all we can to get a good result.
"We cannot be fearful, we must be brave. Our confidence is good and I will field the same team as in the last game [against Panionios]. We are 11 players against 11 and we have to believe that we are their equals.
"I remember Arsene Wenger very well from our time in Japan. I like the way his teams play, with an offensive mentality – it is a philosophy I share. I think he gets the best out of the players he has, and this is the key to his success.
"Arsenal have many players I admire – such as [Cesc] Fabregas, [Robin] van Persie and Eduardo.
"I'm very happy that Eduardo is back from his injury – he spent three weeks recovering at my academy in Brazil. But of course I hope he won't score a goal against us."
Both sides won their Champions League openers and will be keen to pick up another win.
