Asi ti stands, Frank Lampard's wards must win by a margin of more than four unreplied goals to stand a chance of qualifying for the quarter-finals of the European competition.

But Giroud, who kept his place in the team after scoring against Tottenham at the weekend believes his side only needs belief and to play with more freedom in Germany to turn the tables.

"It's going to be almost impossible. But we need to go there with belief, to believe that we can score. You never know.

"They scored three here, so we need to go there and score three and not concede. I'm not joking," Giroud quipped according to Express UK.

We have nothing to lose, we're going to play our game maybe with more freedom," he continued.

Meanwhile, the west London club will have to make the Germany trip without Marcos Alonso and Jorginho who is suspended.
