Olivier Giroud believes that Arsenal have a great chance of qualifying for the quarter finals should they be able to replicate their recent form in the league and the FA Cup in the Champions League.
The Frenchman, who missed a plethora of chances against Monaco when the sides met at the Emirates last month, is desperate to make things right after seeing his side succumb to a 3-1 thrashing in an ignominious night for the Gunners.
Giroud was substituted after the 60-minute mark, a testament to his struggles that night.
However, the Frenchman has answered his critics since then, scoring three goals in the ensuing league games, including a goal and an assist against West Ham in a 3-0 win at the Emirates.
"We were disappointed by the result [at Emirates Stadium] and obviously we have to bounce back and give everything," Giroud told Arsenal's official site.
"We trust in our chance to go through and if we create as many chances as we did [against West Ham], we can create hope.
"We are on a really good run. I think we learned from our mistakes and we will go there with a lot of confidence but it will be a tough game."
The striker has been in brilliant form since coming back from a three-month layoff at the beginning of the season, scoring 14 goals thus far and with a minutes-per-goal ratio among the best in the league.
However, his ability to shine on the big stage has been called to question, something that the Frenchman has to respond to at the Stade Louis II if the Gunners have to have any chance of going through.
"Since I came back from injury, I take a lot of pressure on the pitch," he said. "I try to have a good workrate for the team. That's the key of our game, to keep the pressure on the defenders.
"We try to keep it up and switch on as fast as we can when we lose the ball and turn quickly from defensive to offensive positions. It's teamwork. We are going to try to do it as much as we can," he concluded.
