Fenerbahce coach Ersun Yanal believes his side can ‘surprise’ Arsenal by a 3-0 deficit in the second-leg of their Champions League qualifier.

The Turkish giants handed the Premier League club a massive advantage in the quest to secure a spot in the competition’s group stage after a poor showing in Istanbul.
But despite now needing a strong performance at the Emirates to have any hope of advancing, Yanal is confident the “real Fenerbahce” will show it’s true worth.
“It was a difficult score and they have a squad they have been playing for a long time, but nothing is a surprise for Fenerbahce,” Yanal said.
“A difficult game is ahead of us. The first game we lost, (but) that's not the real Fenerbahce.
“We're a great team, a great club, with great fans, some of the greatest fans in the world.
“With their energy and strength we will always show a great performance on the pitch.
“We want to do that tomorrow, go on the pitch and get a good result.
“Fenerbahce can play against any team in the world. With the result we wish to get we want to take our performance to an even greater level.
“We have a great squad and when they show their strength on the pitch, they will show their real performance.
“We are playing against a very powerful team. It's important we show a great performance tomorrow on the pitch.”
Striker Pierre Webo agreed with his coach, calling the first leg result “an accident”.
The former Real Mallorca striker said: “We will show everyone that what they saw during the first game is not real Fenerbahce. In my opinion, that was an accident.
“This is not reality and we will show what the reality is tomorrow.”
Fenerbahce will be without former Newcastle midfielder Emre Belozoglu, but can call upon former Premier League players Raul Meireles and Dirk Kuyt.
