"The belief and character we have showed in all the games is why got so many goals in the late stages," he said.

"We kept creating chance after chance and got what we deserved in the end, which was a victory.

"The most important thing was the three points and to then think about Barcelona."

Bendtner accepts Arsenal cannot give Barcelona as much space as they were afforded at Emirates Stadium and must look to capitalise on the absence of regular central-defensive pairing Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique, who are both suspended for the second leg.

"Barcelona are a great passing team. We have to try to get a little tighter to them and not give them so much time to play," he said.

"For any team to be without their two central defenders, the two players who play week-in week-out, you know they are people they built the team around and it is not good for them - it is good for us.

"It is going to be a hard game, but we think we can do it - this is a trophy we want to win and to win the Champions League you have to beat the best teams." Enditem
