Borussia Dortmund attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan is confident his side have the “necessary strength” to reach the Champions League final this season, according to Goal.com
The Bundesliga giants reached the final of the European competition in 2012-13, losing to league rivals Bayern Munich at Wembley, and it took the grit of eventual winners Real Madrid to knock Jurgen Klopp’s side out the following season.
And Mkhitaryan believes his side have what it takes to go all the way again this term, insisting they will do their utmost to do so.
“Why not?” the Armenia international told Kicker when asked if his side could feature in this season’s final in Berlin.
“We have the necessary strength to do it. We can reach the final again and will do everything to be there.”
The German side begin their Champions League campaign with a home match against Arsenal, whom they met in the group stage of last season’s competition.
Dortmund lost 2-1 to the Premier League club in the Signal Iduna Park last year and midfielder Sebastian Kehl insists his side are out for revenge.
“It’s been a while since our last home win over Arsenal. So we have some making up to do.”
