Soccer – Wenger keen to build on ‘special’ win

Arsene Wenger is beginning to think Arsenal could win the Champions League this season following their excellent 3-0 victory at Olympiakos. The Gunners needed to win the match by two goals or more, or better the 3-2 defeat they suffered at home to the Greek champions in September, to qualify for the last-16 of the competition. An Olivier Giroud hat-trick proved to be enough for Arsenal to progress even though Wenger was without seven key players, including Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla. "We needed something special and when you deliver something special it can create positive memories for the rest of the season. Maybe it's a lucky year for us in the Champions League, you never know," said Wenger. Arsenal, 25/1 with bet365 to win the Champions League outright this season, are 13/2 to beat rock-bottom Aston Villa 2-0 on Sunday.
